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!
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.
