We hope you enjoy your visit with us as you explore our club and the fun and work we do in West Newbury, Massachusetts.

Who we are   We are a very sociable group of about 60 gardeners of all levels and ages from West Newbury and the neighboring towns who meet once a month for fun, food, friendship, and facts.  We learn about plants, flowers, garden design, and conservation, share ideas and laughter, and conduct the business of the club.  We bring a willingness to help, our expertise, our curiosity, and a sense of camaraderie to all our activities.

What we do   We are a working club; that is, Club members make a commitment to attend at least 3 meetings per year, serve on a work committee (physically active or sedentary), share the hostess duties for refreshments at one meeting per year, and work on our annual fund-raiser, the locally famous Plant Sale. We become better friends for working together, and contribute to the beauty and viability of West Newbury.

Our purpose   The purpose of the Club is to encourage and cultivate an interest in gardening, to aid in the protection and conservation of natural resources, to encourage the study of horticulture and flower arranging, and to promote civic beauty.
