Who are we?
The Dunbarton Garden Club was founded in 1934. Membership is open to all residents of Dunbarton and also to interested folks in neighboring towns. Our annual dues are set at a modest $10, and benefits include discounts at several local businesses. But the greatest benefit is the pleasure of joining together with old and new friends to make our town and our own gardens more beautiful.
Monthly meetings are held throughout the year (see schedule for dates and times). Meeting topics vary: we have an annual free plant swap, several meetings each year feature guest speakers, many begin with a garden tour, and others are devoted to working on our community projects. All are casual and fun, and the general public and visitors are always welcome to attend.
The Dunbarton Garden Club maintains the gardens on the Town Common surrounding the Library and War Memorials, makes holiday decorations for our town buildings and churches, and provides flowers for the Dunbarton Elementary School graduation.
We are involved in a ten year project to sell and plant thousands of daffodils in Dunbarton to celebrate the town's upcoming 250th anniversary in 2015. (Click on "Daffodils for Dunbarton" for more information!)
We also make annual donations, and participate in the Ruth Hingle Memorial Scholarship Fund, open to all graduating Dunbarton high school seniors.
