The Franklin Garden Club meets the first Tuesday of the month from September through June.
Meetings start at 7:00 pm and are held at the Franklin Senior Center, 10 Daniel McCahill St, Franklin Ma
(Just because we’re meeting here doesn’t mean we have to be seniors!)
Franklin Garden Club was founded in 1987 and became a member of The Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts, Inc. in 2015.
Our meetings are a combination of education and service. Speakers provide information on different garden related topics: soil, plants, sun vs. shade, pests, pruning, preparing beds, container pots, and other aspects of gardening. Members volunteer to plant and maintain the Veteran’s Memorial Garden at the Town Common, distribute pine tree seedlings to all first graders in Franklin schools, and provide a scholarship to a graduating senior pursuing an education in environmental studies.
Franklin Garden Club members are a friendly group of gardeners who participate in a yearly fundraiser, enjoy field trips to area gardens, plan a holiday dinner and auction and provide helpful support to each other with gardening problems and questions.
If you have a desire to get your hands dirty, the club members would love to have you join them, whether you are knowledgeable about gardening or not!
Membership in the Franklin Garden Club is open to residents and non-residents alike.
