Monthly Meetings

Join us at our monthly meetings with guest speakers, panel presentations, and a light brunch. We generally meet on the last Monday of the month from September to April.

The public is welcome!

Community Service

You see us around town!

We're the ones who fill the window boxes at

Town Hall and the Still River Post Office,

provide flowers for the library, walk the

Harvard trails, and much more.

 

Some of our community activities include:

  • Planting and maintaining public areas

  • Making flower arrangements with residents of area nursing homes

  • Offering a yearly grant or scholarship

  • Creating flower arrangements for the Harvard Public Library and the Bromfield graduation

  • Donating books on gardening and conservation to the library

  • Supporting conservation efforts on nature trails

  • Council on Aging projects

  • Meet with area Girl Scouts to teach flower arranging

Spring Plant Sale

At our plant sale in May, we sell hundreds

of Harvard-hardy perennials from our own

gardens, as well as top-notch annuals,

vegetables, and herbs.

 

Annual Luncheon and Garden Tour

In June, we celebrate the growing season with

a tour of several beautiful Harvard gardens,

preceded by our annual luncheon meeting.

 

Workshops, Trips, and Special Programs

Depending on members' interests, we may hold special workshops, arrange a group trip, or visit a nursery. On a weekly trail walk, you might find a surprise in the grass. Garden club members plant seasonal flowers in window boxes on town buildings.
