Edgewood Garden Club of Homewood, Alabama is pleased to plant their 2009-2010 Ida Burns Memorial Tree at the Homewood Public Library. Ida Burns was a long time Homewood resident and centenarian. Mrs. Burns, a selfless community naturalist and supporter of the Birmingham Botanical Gardens from its inception, has made it possible for the Edgewood Garden Club to grace our city with a tree each year. This tree and others that the club has planted in her memory and honor will help sustain the environment for years to come. Edgewood Garden Club is a member of the Federated Garden Clubs of Alabama.
