Thank you for your interest in the Littleton Country Gardeners!  Our club was established in 1959 and Federated in 1960.  We are a member of the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts, Inc. and National Garden Clubs, Inc.

 

The Club members meet the fourth Tuesday morning each month from September through May.  Most of the meetings are held at the New England Forestry Foundation located at 32 Foster Street, or at a location published in the yearly Program Book.

 

A different educational program is included with each month’s meeting.  All programs are garden related with subjects including garden cooking, fairy and elf gardens, care of fruit trees, beekeeping, container gardening, edible centerpieces, attracting butterflies to the garden, herb gardens, edible teas, sustainable farming, and many more.  We also go on field trips (Tower Hill, Mount Auburn Cemetery, Nashoba Winery, Garden in the Woods, private home gardens, etc.) and hold a luncheon at the May meeting. 

 

This is a working club!  Each member is assigned one Civic site in Littleton (of 13 total sites currently) and to one Committee within the Club (Garden Therapy, Program, Horticulture, Library, Civics, and other appointed committees).  The plantings at each Civic site are changed four times per year.  Members also take turns placing a floral arrangement or plant at the front desk of the Reuben Hoar Library each Monday. 

 

Our Club does activities with seniors in town once a month and also annually gives trees to third graders in town.  We hold a plant sale on the Common on the second Saturday in May annually, and we have a table at the Holiday Bazaar held the first Saturday of December. 

 

We have lots of fun while working together as a team.  Being a member gives you the opportunity to meet others, build friendships, and learn about gardening.
