Virginia Schmidt, Co-Director

Virginia Schmidt has been a member of Twinsburg Garden Club for seven years.  She served as Co-President for three years, and has been Treasurer for the past two years. Other TGC activities include maintaining the website, membership, and working at the club’s native plant garden.

Virginia became a Summit County Master Gardener Volunteer in 2013.  She also serves on the board of the Garden Forum of Greater Akron, and is past board chair of the Solon Chamber of Commerce.

Virginia enjoys container gardening, and loves to use bright, bold colors—especially purple.  Favorite perennials are hostas, pulmonaria, succulents, and clematis.  She and her husband Tod have lived in Twinsburg since 1998, and they both enjoy travel, history, and their two cats. Virginia hopes to grow the Akron District’s participation in GCO awards as well as district activities, and is grateful for the guidance of 2015-2017 District Director Marlene Hatton.
