The Stonington Garden Club is a nonprofit, member driven organization based in Stonington, Connecticut. Our mission is to educate and encourage interest in the environment, conservation, community projects as well as to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening.
Club members are a diverse mix of active and dynamic men and women. We are artists, designers, master gardeners and novice gardeners, community and school volunteers, business owners and teachers. We all have an interest in learning more about our gardens and helping each other.
We love to beautify our community and are interested in educating ourselves about a variety of garden related subjects (really, anything garden related!). We strive to protect and learn about our natural resources and plants. We have great pride in the Stonington community and its environs. For almost 100 years we have had a lasting impact in our community. Together we share stories of our experiences and learn from both our garden triumphs and our garden goofs.
Our Club has monthly meetings from September through June. We have guest speakers, workshops, demonstrations, and in-club flower projects.
During the summer months we help in a variety of outside gardens, getting down into the dirt in The Children’s Garden at the COMO, The Lighthouse Garden, and the Post Office Garden.
We also supply flowers to the Stonington Free Library weekly, host day trips and have a fabulous floral booth at the annual Stonington Community Fair.
We are proud of our legacy of giving to organizations such as the Giving Garden at Coogan Farm, the Avalonia Land Conservancy and the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center, and for providing a Stonington High School Environmental Science Scholarship & Award. Visit our Community Projects page for more details and click here for a complete list of the organizations which have received funding from the SGC in the past year.
