The Holt Community Garden Club is focused on improving the environment where we live, work, and play.  This means maintaining a natural and beautiful landscape.  The Holt Community Garden Club raises funds through donations in order to pay for some of the expenses associated our garden projects (e.g. mulch, tools, etc.). Come join us for some fun and healthy activity outside!  Thank you to every gardener and donor!
