The Club's History

The Watertown Garden Club was founded in 1967, at which time Mr. Gordon Madge was elected President. The Club was formed with the goals of encouraging the interest of gardening among amateurs; to promote better horticulture practices; to aid in the protection of wild flowers, trees and birds and to encourage planting and beautification of properties.

 

In order to accomplish these goals and enrich the community, members participate in civic development, conservation, garden therapy and junior gardening and offer an annual scholarship to local high school students interested in pursuing a horticultural or environmental career.

Meetings

Monthly meetings are held on the second Thursday at noon. Presentations begin at 1:30 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend. Meetings are normally held at The Union Congregational Church, 161 Buckingham Street, Oakville, CT. Community support is greatly appreciated. New members are always welcome.
