Wilton Garden Club Invites New Members!
You are cordially invited to our February 12th and/or March 12th meeting at 10:30 am at the Wilton Congregational Church. Join with a friend or come on your own, you are sure to meet plenty of like-minded garden enthusiasts. The Wilton Garden Club beautifies our town, supports conservation efforts, works with seniors and youth gardeners, organizes educational events, provides scholarships, and is involved in a host of other philanthropic activities. The common thread joining our 90 or so members is a love of all things garden-related and a commitment to Wilton. Knowledge of gardening is definitely not a prerequisite for joining the Club. Our members bring a wide variety of experience, skills and interests to the table.
You will love the Wilton Garden Club if:
1. You are an excellent gardener -- You'll love meeting other experts and sharing your knowledge with like-minded members. Participate or spearhead activities devoted to conservation, floral design, plant propagation, or senior and youth gardening. You can compete in flower shows and put your expertise to use at our annual plant sale.
2. You are an awful gardener -- Come learn how to not kill every plant! We host horticultural workshops in our greenhouse and excellent floral design classes for our members at all levels of expertise. We also host a dynamic speaker program for members at our monthly meetings. The diverse mixture of women and men who comprise our membership have a vast accumulation of knowledge that they’re willing to share.
From September to May we meet regularly, generally on the second Monday of the month. Our meetings are fun and informative, with a guest speaker, a brief business meeting, and lunch. Members are asked to attend meetings regularly, join a committee (we have 25!), and participate in our annual fundraiser, the Mother’s Day Plant Sale. It is a great way to meet people and get involved while working on interesting projects. We have a very active club with a wide range of committees, projects, and activities. Caring for town gardens, making holiday wreaths for town buildings, propagating plants in our greenhouse, working with seniors through our Garden Therapy programs, providing conservation education, maintaining and renting out Old Town Hall, helping with our newsletter, touring a garden, or learning the art of flower arranging are just some of the many ways in which you can be involved.
Gardens bring people together! Join us, and you'll have a whole club of new friends bound together by a love of gardens.
