  Our objective is the advancement of gardening; the beautification of private and public property; the dissemination of gardening knowledge to the members; and the establishment of and participation in projects for the beautification of the community.

 

  We work together to assist in the civic beautification of our town of Andover through several garden projects.  We meet on the third Thursday evening of each month from September-June.  We also schedule a trip each year to visit a garden within our area.  We have approximately 25 members and meet  in member’s homes or at another public venue in our town.  Our meetings cover a wide variety of subjects including floral arranging, conservation concerns, learning best horticultural practices, etc.  Visitors are always welcome.
