The Brooklin Garden Club was founded in 1935, to serve its members in Brooklin. Over the years membership has grown and now includes individuals from the towns of Blue Hill, Brooksville, Penobscot, Sargentville, Sedgwick and the islands of Deer Isle.Our mission is to stimulate knowledge and love of gardening among amateurs; to aid in the protection of the environment, especially native trees, plants and birds; and to encourage civic planting. To this end, the Brooklin Garden Club shall operate on a non-profit basis solely for charitable and education purposes conducive to the well-being of the public. The Brooklin Garden Club may cooperate with other non-profit charitable organizations in furthering the interest of horticulture and conservation.
ln the 90s, the Brooklin Garden Club established a Grant program open to all Elementary Schools on our Peninsula, to pay for seeds and plants, and/or maintenance, to improve existing gardens and greenhouses; Teachers might see a need for teaching material and School Librarians be looking for funds to add educational books on gardening, flowers, birds and waterfowl. Grants are also available to other groups and individuals that provide services consistent with the mission of the Brooklin Garden Club.
