Organized in 1932 in Ellsworth, Maine, the Ellsworth Garden Club is over 80 years old and still growing. We joined the Garden Club Federation of Maine in 1935 and thus began a long history of civic projects, educational programs and flowers shows. We are interested in you! Are you interested in joining or need more information? Contact us: email@example.com Click here for a membership form to print and mail.
Workdays are from 9 to 11am, generally on Thursday with a rain date of the following Monday. There is a team working every week at Donald Little Park, which is owned and maintained by the club and a team which alternates between the park and other projects, including Ellsworth Harbor Park, Birdsacre, the Blue Star Marker, and Ellsworth school gardens. This is an opportunity for every club member to contribute to the community.
Members, you should have received your 2019 yearbook. If not, contact the club email.
The Conservation Pledge:
I pledge to protect and conserve the natural resources of the planet Earth and promise to promote education so we may become caretakers of our air, water, forest, land and wildlife.
