The Groton Garden Club is a non-profit 501(c)(3) all volunteer organization. The Club was founded in 1923 and currently has over 75 members. We hold monthly meetings from October through June and include a presentation on gardening or horticulture topics.

We also participate in the following activities:

  • Sponsor an annual lecture for the community in February.

  • Hold garden-related workshops for members and their guests.

  • Our varied committees offer members a chance to work outside directly in gardens or with other communications functions such as our website, yearbook, or club publicity.

  • Participate in Grotonfest and promote the club’s mission to the community.
