Membership Committee (2017-18)

“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.  Our membership drive is typically held in the spring, but new members are welcome to join at any time.  If interested, contact the Membership Committee 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 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.

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.

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.
