MTM On The Road: Meeting the Elk Rapids Garden Club

If you live in Elk Rapids, you’ve probably noticed that the village is covered in mysterious gardens.

But who takes care of them?

That would be the work of the .

This group is responsible for planting and maintaining the 10 intricate gardens scattered across the village.

They even combine artwork and history into the gardens. Their largest garden, Iva’s Arrowhead Garden, is set to receive a piece later this month. A local artist is creating a metal arbor, using old metal and gardening tools donated by the community.

Our On The Road Crew, Lauren and Tyler, are introducing us to some of the dedicated gardeners and walking through three of their biggest and most meaningful gardens.
