About Us

North Stonington Garden Club was founded in 1939 and federated in 1940. We are a 501(c)(3) non‐profit organization and we welcome new members from North Stonington and adjacent towns.

Our Mission

The advancement of gardening and allied interests

Who We Are

The North Stonington Garden Club is a community of active, enthusiastic, and friendly gardeners.  There are currently more than 70 active members who come, not only from North Stonington, but many surrounding towns.  While we all enjoy gardening, we vary in our areas of interests and skill levels.

Workshops and fun things to do

Throughout the year, workshops are offered to provide members with hands-on opportunities to have fun and learn new skills.  We schedule garden visits to some of New England’s beautiful botanic gardens, conservation preserves, and nurseries for inspiration, as well as offering guided hikes and nature walks, and community education programs in our local schools, libraries and senior centers.

 

Our Plant Sale

Our popular annual plant sale supports town beautification projects, a scholarship, and when revenues permit,  provides grants to a number of local (and not so local) non-profit agencies for garden-related projects.

 

Our Meetings

Our monthly meetings provide opportunities to learn more about gardening and to socialize with friends.  Meetings feature entertaining and educational speakers who share expertise and insight on a variety of topics of interest to the group. Guests are always welcome. 

Meetings are usually held on a Tuesday, February through October, and vary between daytimes and eveings to accommodate the working schedules of as many as possible..  See our upcoming Programs, or email us for notifications.

 

Membership

We welcome men and women of skill levels, from new gardeners who want to learn more, to Master Gardeners happy to share their knowledge and experience.  We offer everyone the chance to learn, get involved and share their love of gardening.  Current membership dues are the lowest of any garden club in the region.

Come for a visit; stay as a member.
