Membership is open to any one interested in enjoying and contributing to the organization’s activities. There are so many benefits to working with and enjoying a gardener’s community. The educational programs, field trips and workshops are so interesting. Many of our members are master gardeners,
graduates of the Cooperative Extension Service of the University of New Hampshire, who are always available for consultation about your garden issues. It can be great fun to work in our civic beautification projects; these projects are rarely hard work, and there’s great camaraderie among our groups. In addition, there are some terrific bakers who supply our social activities!
Twice a year we gather at a member’s home for a grand party, at the winter holiday season, when spouses and guests are invited, and a beautiful garden party in June. Everyone contributes favorite recipes and beverages, a lovely gathering time of good people and good food.
An additional advantage to Club members is the generous discounts provided by several local businesses, including Bedford Fields, Royal Bouquet Florist, Amherst Garden Center and Flower Shop, and Shady Hill Greenhouses.
Like most organizations, we invite our members to consider actively participating in meetings, workshops, field trips, as well as volunteer activities. Our committee chairs and their volunteers share in doing tasks with humor and friendship. Most chores can be divided by complexity and availability of volunteers. The Membership Form provides more detailed information about the different assignments that we can share. Do your part and enjoy your friends!
Our annual Business is held in May. We review our accomplishments of the past year and make plans for next year. Officers are elected, budgets reviewed and any unfinished business is completed. This is an important meeting and member participation is strongly recommended.
