Located in Quincy, Massachusetts and incorporated in 1931 we are currently celebrating our 86th year! We presently have 117 members including men and women gardeners of all ages, abilities and interests, from novice to master gardener.
Most of our educational programs and meetings are open to the community. Member’s programs include field trips and workshops in floral design and horticulture. Our civic beautification committee maintains a number of public sites in the city of Quincy, and our conservation committee is actively involved in projects preserving the environment in our city.
We encourage local gardeners interested in joining our club to attend a meeting or two, and read the club By-Laws, membership responsibilities and other pertinent information located in the Members section of this site.
