Since 1984 Columbia Green has helped Columbia and the midlands of South Carolina put out the welcome mat. Evidence of the organization's work radiates in community parks, medians, major gateways, and in your neighborhoods, with plantings of flowers, shrubs, and trees that delight the eye and lift the spirit.
Columbia Green is most recognized for the landscaped medians throughout Columbia. In addition, money is raised and granted to civic, non-profit, and neighborhood associations to underwrite projects that re-flourish, revive and enhance public spaces with renewed landscaping.
ANOTHER GREAT MEMBERSHIP EVENT
Columbia Green members and guests joined Lori Watson of Mill Creek Greenhouses on a beautiful spring morning for a tour and talk on native plants. They learned helpful information on habits and growing tips of unusual plants.

Wonderful Weather for Successful Members Event at Cooper's Nursery
After having to cancel the membership event at Cooper's Nursery last fall due to the October flood, everyone had their fingers crossed that Hurricane Matthew would be long-gone in time for the much anticipated re-staging of the "Thrillers, Fillers, and Spillers" workshop. This event focused on transforming those now sad summer planters into attractive decorative features for the fall and the coming holiday season. The professionals at Cooper’s offered easy and effective ways to take ordinary plants you can purchase this time of year and make them into an eye popping focal point of your home decor.
Starting with an interesting tall plant in the center, participants learned how to mix textures and seasonal color in clever ways to either spruce up an old pot or put together a new creation. Participants were also taken on a tour of the Nursery where the staff answered questions about specific plants and made suggestions as to their use this time of year.
Many, many thanks to Mrs. Ellen Cooper, Sherry Bonitz, and Debra Templin who made Columbia Green members feel welcome, even providing refreshments and a significant discount on all plants purchased. Cooper's Nursery has long been a supporter of Columbia Green and members are always welcomed and given a standard 10% discount on purchases through the year.
