After many weeks of winter hibernation, Sandown Garden Club kicked off the 2023 season! We held our first business meeting on Monday, Feb. 6, 2023. We reviewed the club's events, programs, and other important fun gardening happenings for 2023. A few non-members were in attendance, and a couple of them joined the club! More photos here.
Members celebrated a successful 2022 Garden Club season with a get-together at the Pasta Loft in Hampstead, NH on Dec. 4. The celebration was enjoyed by everyone who attended.
As part of SGC's mission to enhance the beauty of our community, Garden Club members picked up trash along major roads of Sandown. A BIG shoutout to Lisa, Wanda, Jamie, Jan, and Tricia for stepping up for the trash pickup last Sept. 25!
The Sandown Garden Club held its first meeting upstairs in the Town Hall on April 3, 2008 with a program called "Waking Up Your Garden for Spring". That June, the club held its first Plant Sale which is now an annual event. Those early members undertook two civic garden projects at Liberty Elm and the Town Hall. In May 2009, the club became a member of the New Hampshire Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc. and of National Garden Clubs, Inc. Over the years, the Sandown Garden Club has provided many free gardening programs for the public. Each year is filled with activities in which club members take part, such as roadside cleanup in spring and fall; caring for plantings at civic sites; the annual Plant Swap; a family oriented project for Earth Day; decorating the town's civic sites for the holidays; plus, field trips to such places as Tower Hill Botanical Gardens, Fuller Gardens, the Fells and more. Members also enjoy social times including the summer BBQ, Pizza Night and a Holiday Party.For all its efforts, the SGC has received numerous awards, both state wide and nationally. In May 2017, the club was honored for its major project, establishing a certified Monarch Waystation and Pollinator Garden on the grounds of the Sandown town Hall.
