Usually, the Greater New Bedford Garden Club meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 1:00 p.m. at the Acushnet Council on Aging.  Before the pandemic we would meet for business and a workshop or speaker. Afterwards the members would enjoy tea, coffee and pastry organized by the hospitality committee.

This year, of course, we could not continue our meetings.  With a member list of almost 100 members the restrictions from the pandemic made it impossible.  In September we did hold a meeting in the President’s yard.  Approximately 45 members attended.  We all wore masks and chairs were placed on the lawn six feet apart on marked spots.  The club provided individual boxed lunches.  We were pleased that our district director, Marjorie Dienhart attended this meeting.

Membership Info

Our hope is that our members continue to belong despite the problems we’ve all had to face

this past year.  We will be sending out a renewal form in the spring. 

New potential members can leave their information below on “Get in Touch”. 


We combined our June meeting and installation of officers with our first meeting in September in a member’s yard.

The beautification Committee decorated window boxes at the New Bedford Art Museum.

Members decorated Seaman’s Bethel for the holidays.

Meeting Schedule

Every first Wednesdays of the month meetings will be held on Zoom. 

As soon as the weather becomes somewhat pleasant, we will meet in yards for the large gatherings of the full membership.  Smaller meetings or workshops might potentially be held at the outdoor pavilion at the Acushnet Council on Aging.


Our May plant sale will still be held. 

Plants have already been started at the greenhouse.  The time and place will be announced later.  Proceeds from last years sale provided scholarships for two students in our area. 

We hope to be able to do the same this year.
