The Amherst Garden Club meets monthly from September through June. Meetings are held the first Thursday of the month (except in Sept., when the meeting is the first Thursday after Labor Day).
Most meetings include a featured speaker. The public is welcome at all meetings (except the Holiday-Décor Workshop and June Annual Luncheon). There is no fee to attend.
