Membership Committee (2016-17)

“I am so thrilled to have been introduced to the AGC…  the Amherst Garden Club displays graciousness, generosity and good intentions. There is so much more to The Amherst Garden Club than I would have imagined.”
— Jane, who joined in 2015

Membership is open to anyone interested in the mission of the Amherst Garden Club (AGC).   New members may join the AGC at any time during the year, although our membership drive is in the spring for the coming year. Contact the Membership Co-Chairmen if interested or attend a monthly meeting..  As an Amherst Gardener, you have the opportunity to participate in all activities and events.

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’s meeting.  The renewal form is found in The Grapevine (April), our monthly newsletter, for current members.  New members may join by attending any monthly meeting and paying the $25.00 membership fee or by downloading the AGC Membership Form 2017-18 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.  Our yearly renewal fee is also $25.00.

Members are asked to serve on a hospitality committee 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.

New for the 2014-15 year will be two options for attending meetings; the same daytime meeting as in the past, plus a new evening meeting.  See our meetings page for more information and a list of upcoming programs.

Our membership drive is always held in the spring, but new members are welcome to join at any time during the year. Guests are always welcome to attend any programs unless otherwise stated. There is no guest fee charged, as it is part of our mission statement to educate and promote the love of gardening.

As an Amherst gardener, you have the opportunity to participate in many activities and events.  Look at the information in our newsletter, The Grapevine, and at monthly meetings and get involved in the things that are available!
