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 amatures; 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.
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.
