WELCOME to the CHATHAM GARDEN CLUB
Nurturing Nature at the Edge of the Ocean
About the club:
The Chatham Garden Club of Chatham, MA, was organized in April of 1968 by 29 women with a passion for gardening. Membership in the club is open to all. The club meets monthly from September to June for light refreshments and a program focused on gardening and/or conservation. During the summer months club members design, update and maintain 11 town gardens; they also raise funds through various events, including a biennial garden tour and the annual Cape-wide Hydrangea Festival for the gardens and scholarships. Members contribute by working in the town gardens throughout the summer and support the fund-raising activities throughout the year.
