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.

Teresa Hagan, current president of the Garden Club, cuts the anniversary cake surrounded by past club presidents and other members.

To kickoff the very busy November meeting, members celebrated the 60th anniversary of our club. Later, the very talented Teddie Falcone guided members through the creation of five original floral designs. Five lucky raffle-winning members  were able to take home an arrangement.  Last, but certainly not least, the club also inducted six new members.
