Grand Isle Garden Club

Mission:

The Garden Club of Grand Isle was created in 2016 to restore and beautify Grand Isle following damage to the island from numerous hurricanes. The Garden Club promotes restoring the island’s trees and natural environment, as well as educating residents, youth and visitors on the importance of Grand Isle to the state and nation.

Our Story:

Grand Isle has been through a lot in the last 10 years, from Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustav and Ike to the BP oil disaster, Tropical Storm Lee and Hurricane Isaac. Yet the people and spirit of the town have come back stronger than ever. As Louisiana’s only inhabited barrier island, Grand Isle is a vital first line of defense for the state against hurricanes and a unique wildlife habitat for many species of marine life and birds. It is also an important hub for seafood and the oil industry. As a living testament to the strength and resilience of the people of south Louisiana, the Garden Club of Grand Isle first began raising funds to plant palm trees along the main road running through the town, LA Highway 1 and now they have added native trees, such as live oak and mulberry trees to their mission.

Join the Club:

The Grand Isle Garden Club is made up islanders, camp owners and visitors. We all share the mission of wanting to make Grand Isle a better place. We enjoy meeting and taking on various projects that benefit the island.  We encourage all to join in our efforts to beautify and revitalize our unique island.
