The Groton Garden Club was founded in 1923 and is a non-profit 501(c)(3) all-volunteer organization. We hold monthly meetings from October through June which include a presentation on gardening or horticulture topics. 

 

We also organize and run the following activities:

  • An annual Plant Sale in May. This event raises funds to maintain municipal gardens in Groton and continue our community service work. 

  • A FREE annual public lecture for the community.

  • A Winter Workshop where members create arrangements and Boxwood trees/Winter arrangements for donation to Meals on Wheels and various Groton government offices.

  • A Native Plant and Pollinator Garden at the Groton Town Hall helps educate the public on how they can increase native plants in their own yard.

  • Donated passes, located at the Groton Public Library, to the New England Botanic Garden at Tower Hill and Garden in the Woods (Native Plant Trust)

  • We educate our members through programs, workshops, and field trips.

  • We have a variety of committees that offer members opportunities to work outside in gardens or in other areas like the website, yearbook, or club publicity.
