Welcome

Our Purpose

To further, in every way, interest in gardening and kindred subjects and to cooperate with all programs for the improvement in planting, conservation, environment and beautification of our island.

The Club supports many out-reach programs, local environmental organizations, scholarship programs, and services through the monies raised by our annual Holiday Tour of Homes.

Professional speakers present programs throughout the year on floral design, horticulture, environmental issues and garden-related topics.

Membership meetings are held the second Thursday of every month, September through May excluding December.

Interested in joining our club? You must have a residence on Long Beach Island or Stafford Township. Ask one of our members about attending a meeting or go to the “Contact Us” tab to complete the Contact Form.

 

March 2019 Meeting- St. Patrick’s Day Green

The approach of this March 17th holiday was apparent in the beautiful St.Patrick’s Day themed centerpieces by Diane Pleyn and Gale Garfinkel. This month’s guest Tina Mueller, owner of Sassafras Hill Farm in Barnegat, spoke to the club about running a ” certified naturally grown” farm in Ocean County. Tina studied Biodynamic Farming in Vermont for twenty years and shared her knowledge with our members. Spring can’t be far away.

February 2019 Meeting – Valentine’s Day

The February meeting fell on Valentine’s Day and kicked off the “2nd ANNUAL  READY – SET – CREATE”  event. For this event, three talented members of our club, Betty Frey, Lois Perry and Jennifer Schwab , created floral arrangements while club members watched using identical  flowers and containers .  The arrangements were then raffled off and three lucky members took home a beautiful floral design.
