The Wellesley Gardeners' Guild, established in 1968, has contributed to the beautification of Wellesley through our many civic projects. Along the way, we have opened our homes, our gardens, and our hearts to each other.
Current Civic Projects of the Wellesley Gardeners' Guild:
Wellesley Post Offices: Fund, plant and maintain window boxes at both the Wellesley Hills and Wellesley Square Post offices in the spring, summer, and fall, as well as decorate both post offices for the holidays.
Wellesley Free Library: Plant flowers in containers at both main entrances to the building in the fall, winter, spring and summer.
Town Square Clock Garden: Provide funding to Wellesley for seasonal plantings for the town Square Clock Garden located in front of The Gap on Central Street.
Museum of Fine Arts: “Art in Bloom” arrangement participant.
Provide funding for plantings for the Fells sitting area on Weston Rd. at Route 9.
• Planted annuals in conjunction with the town horticulturist at the Warren and Washington Streets intersection. Donor to Reidy Field.

The WGG consists of up to 45 active members who are asked to do the following:
Pay annual dues of $60.
Chair or serve as an active member on one committee per year.
Participate in the annual fundraiser.
Water the post office window boxes at least one week per year.
Assist in two plantings per year.
Fill one hospitality spot for a regular meeting.
After 5 years of service, active members may elect to assume a sustaining status, at which point annual dues are $30 and other requirements are waived. However, many members enjoy the WGG so much, they choose to stay active well beyond those 5 years!
