Membership is open to anyone interested in the mission of the Amherst Garden Club.  Our membership drive is typically held in the spring, but new members are welcome to join at any time.  If interested, contact the club at info@amherstgardenclub.org or attend a daytime or evening monthly meeting.

Dues ($25.00) are generally paid annually in April and May (for the upcoming year) so as to give time to pull together the club yearbook for distribution at the October meeting.  The renewal form is found in our monthly newsletter.  New members may join by attending any monthly meeting and paying the $25.00 membership fee or by downloading the AGC Membership Form 2018-19 and mailing it to the address on the form along with the fee.  There will be an additional fee for a name tag if one is needed.

Members are asked to help with hospitality by providing and/or serving food and beverages once a year, help out with one of our Civic Gardens, and donate six or more plants (from your garden, a friend’s, or a local plant store) for our annual Plant Sale fundraiser.

Guests are always welcome to attend all club programs, except for the few that are for members only (i.e., holiday workshop and June luncheon). There is no guest fee charged, as it is part of our mission statement to educate and promote the love of gardening.
