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.

Get In Touch!
We're happy to answer your questions.
Following the recommendation of Littleton health officials we have cancelled meetings for the rest of the season.
Instead we will be active through the Spring and Summer maintaining our civic sites around town. In addition, we are working with a landscape architect to enhance the plantings at the Town Offices on Shattuck Street.

Holiday Wreath and Swag Sale
Littleton Country Gardeners maintains plantings in thirteen civic sites, changing them up four times per year.
This includes fountains around town, the entrances to the town hall, the library, and even the fire department, among others.
We usually raise money to buy plants with a plant sale in May and a table at the Holiday Bazaar in December.
Unfortunately, these events were cancelled this year due to the Covid pandemic.
In place of these events the club is planning a smaller sale
on Saturday, December 5, 10-2, in the
Congregational Church parking lot at 330 King Street.
The church will have its own tables.
Check that out as well.
Our talented members will make wreaths and swag, and decorate mugs.
A few Afghans will be on sale too.
Please stop by and pick up a little holiday cheerfulness for yourself, or as a lovely gift.
