beautify our community. Three are clustered at the corner of
Main and Center Street: the Margaret Trotter Memorial
Garden; the Vietnam Memorial Park Garden, designed to honor
our veterans; and the Gateway Garden, "planted pink" in
support of breast cancer awareness.We care for
the Ellen Buckley Memorial Garden on the Green and assist

WHO WE ARE
We are men and women of all ages
who enjoy the broadest range of gardening including
perennials, annuals, roses, shade and sun, rock gardens and
water gardens, carnivorous and tropicals, even indoor
gardens. And sometimes, no gardens but a great passion for
beauty, service, and friendship.
Our regular meetings are open to the public and we would
like to share our knowledge and enthusiasm. Please consider
attending one of our programs.
