Welcome!


The Brooklin Garden Club was established in 1935, to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening among amateurs; to aid in the protection of native trees, plants and birds; to encourage civic planting; to help fund local projects and to support with scholarships young students pursuing their studies in horticulture and in forestry.

The Brooklin Garden Club covers the towns of Brooklin, Brooksville, Penobscot, Sargentville and Sedgwick. Many of our events are also open to members of area Garden Clubs.






Because of the COVID-19 pandemic we were forced to postpone our event,

 originally planned for July 2020 to 2022.


To benefit the community and commemorate its 86th Anniversary, the Brooklin Garden Club is presenting "Art in Bloom: A Festival of Maine Art and Flowers" in 2022. It will take place at the Bay School's Emlen Hall, 17 Bay School Drive, in Blue Hill. This is the Club's unique major fundraising event for its educational and community programs.


Some twenty-four original works of accomplished Maine artists will be exhibited accompanied by floral arrangements interpreting each (some samples of our similar event 8 years ago you see at the top of this site). The art will be offered for sale and the Club's proceeds from those sales and the tickets to the Festival will be used to benefit Blue Hll Peninsula Students and community programs.


For  more information, contact Julie Boardman (239) 994-4668 or email Julie.

To discuss sponsorship options or to purchase tickets email Joan Cousar or call Joan at (904) 612-5201.

Our spontaneous support for the TREE OF LIFE Food Pantry in Blue Hill


For hundreds of families on the Blue Hill Peninsula and Downeast the virus has drastically changed their lives and over night eliminated their sources of income. While many already lived on the edge, they now seriously struggle with how to feed their members.

 

The Brooklin Garden Club immediately approved a donation to the Food Pantry, for them to buy fresh vegetables and fruits from our area farmers.
