Mission: Provide education resources and networking opportunities for our members to promote the love of gardening, civic landscaping and environmental responsibility.
The Amherst Garden Club is one of the largest and most active garden clubs in New Hampshire. Our flagship activity is our annual plant sale, always held the Saturday before Mother’s Day. Each year we sell more than 2,000 potted perennials, dug by hand from gardens in and around Amherst.
Currently, we maintain ten garden spaces throughout Amherst. See the Civic Gardens menu for a map and locations.
We hold monthly meetings from September through June, with interesting guest speakers. There are daytime and evening meetings to accommodate different schedules.
In addition to regular meetings, we get together in smaller, special interest groups, take fun field trips, and gather for social events.
We also give back to the community in many ways, including awarding scholarships and grants, providing flowers for a local soup kitchen, and sponsoring a “memory tree” each holiday season.
We are a busy club indeed, with something to offer every type of gardener!
