The Groton Garden Club
Mission: The purpose of this club is to encourage and promote interest in and development of all aspects of gardening.
Our mission provides a broad framework in which the club has operated over the years. Currently we maintain or share responsibility for five gardens within Groton: the Blue Star Memorial on Sawyer Common, Hanson Memorial on Playground Road, Hollis Street Triangle, Prescott Common, and Four Corners Traffic Island. We also fill the watering troughs in West Groton and in Groton Center with seasonal plantings and arrangements and help to maintain the gardens at the Virginia Thurston Healing Garden. We have monthly meetings and programs from October through June, run an annual Plant Sale, take educational and fun field trips, and hold garden-related workshops. Yes, we are a busy group and enjoy getting our hands dirty together, as well as talking about gardens over a cup of tea or coffee. To get an overview of the things we do, see our summary committee descriptions.
Some of the committees also have pages with additional descriptions and photographs. You’ll find those pages in the drop-down menu under the general Committee page.
If you want to know more about our programs we do, please check out upcoming and past events at our calendar.
