Programs, Outings and Social Events

Programs and events that educate and enlighten members to be better gardeners and stewards of the earth are pillars of the Brooklin Garden Club. Programs run monthly from May through October, usually held at 2 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month, with many meetings open to guests and the public. Previous summer season programs included an exploration of Native Gardens, horticultural practice and design, daylily versatility, a closer look at garden insects, mushroom identification, container gardens and straw-bale vegetable gardening. Details for each meeting can be found on our Facebook page.

Winter programs for year-round residents are less frequent and more intimate with a holiday tea, a pot-luck dinner at a member’s home and one or more other seasonal events.
