Interested in joining the West Hartford Garden Club?
Our purpose is to stimulate interest and creative activity in the art of gardening and floral design; to enhance the beauty of our community and to contribute to civic improvement; and to work for the conservation of native plants and wildlife.
We are a working club, involved in all kinds of garden-related activities. We maintain the Butler-McCook Garden in Hartford and the Noah Webster Garden in West Hartford. We offer activities for children and senior citizens in our community. We teach our members flower arranging, conservation, horticulture, and trends in landscape design. Every two years we sponsor a Garden Tour of local gardens. For more information, please contact us.
Our meetings are at noon on either the first or second Thursday of the month, September through June, at Saint John’s Episcopal Church in West Hartford. A light lunch and a short meeting are followed by an interesting program, all within about two hours. To see a list of our open meetings click here, and to reserve a spot at a meeting click here.
Requirements for Active membership: All Club members are strongly encouraged to attend four meetings during the program year and to serve on a standing committee. Members are strongly encouraged to participate in Flower Shows, Garden Tours and any Club-wide fundraising event. Every able-bodied member is strongly encouraged to participate at the Butler-McCook Gardens and at the Noah Webster Garden for at least one session between April and October. All new members are strongly encouraged to attend two basic courses in flower arranging within two years of joining the Club. To inquire about membership, please contact our Membership Chair.
