Since 1954 we have been serving many communities of New London county. We are a non-profit club dedicated to the planning and performance of educational and charitable projects with emphasis on horticulture, conservation, civic planting, floral and landscape design. We strive to spread joy, by making the community a better place.
Our Philanthropy, Outreach and Continuous Learning Programs
In 2022 we donated to a number of organizations including Avalonia Land Conservancy, Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center, The Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut Scholarship Fund, The Friends of Harkness Memorial State Park, Master Gardeners at Camp Harkness, Ukrainian Relief, Waterford Land Trust and Waterford Public Library.
The club has maintained the Terry Wilmot Herb Garden at the historic 1838 Beebe-Phillips House on Waterford’s Jordan Green since 1972. We have active garden therapy programs at York Correctional Institution in Niantic and at New London Acute Rehabilitation and Care. We have run a successful Plant Sale for over two decades raising money for our philanthropic causes.
Each month we invite guest speakers who provide education on the science and beauty of plants, including their sowing, cultivation, and arranging, while instilling an appreciation of their artistry, utility and value.
