The Tri-county Diggers Garden Club, TDGC, has members from Grimes, Madison and Walker Counties. They have been gardening, learning and having fun while serving the community for 26 years. Last summer they celebrated their Silver Anniversary.

On June 5, 2019 TDGC President and founder Loraine Kuehn, Jessie Grant and Pat Cheatham met with Wanda Eckeberger at the Hospitality House, HH,, to give a $100 award in honor of National Garden Week, June 2-8. In Huntsville, TX since 1986, HH is an overnight inmate family facility that operates seven days a week. It gives families visiting inmates at the nearby prison a place to stay. Their motto is “Sharing God’s Grace with the other victims of crime”. TDGC also supports HH families by donating toiletries, books, etc.

To start the fall season, TDGC will host a presentation on how to plant fall trees given by Walker County Extension Agent Reggie Lepley at the Bedias Civic Center, BCC, at 301 East Main in Bedias, TX on Wednesday, September 4, 2019 at 10 a.m. All visitors are welcome.

Lepley is from the Walker County Agri-Life Extension Agency, , at 102 Tam Road, Suite B, Huntsville, TX 77320.

Outgoing President Kuehn who celebrated her 92nd birthday on July 4, will be replaced by Micheline Tielke of Bedias in September. TDGC meets the first Wednesday of each month at BCC at 10 a.m. But, Cheatham said, “Two to three times a year we try to expand our horizons and venture out to other facilities.” This and other information can be found at
