Why do people join garden clubs? Probably for two or three of the following reasons:

  • Cameraderie with like minded people.
  • Access to garden information from "experienced hands."
  • Activities, including programs and trips.
  • Social activities, including participation in club meetings and luncheons.

Most are self-explanatory and we can assure you are available in good measure in the Club.

Some futher detail of recent activities of the club is in order.

This Spring's calendar is detailed on the Calendar page (press the button above), and includes two talks and slide shows, and a bus trip to Stonecrop in Cold Spring, NY.

Prior year trips and events included trips to Wave Hill in the Bronx, to Old Westbury on Long Island and to a variety of private gardens opened through special arrangement for our members to tour.
