The object of this club shall be to study the fine art of gardening and horticulture. This will enable us to assist others who are interested in improving their gardens and surroundings. Other goals would include aiding in protection and conservation of native trees, plants and birds, implementing community beautification, and supporting community activities.
What We Do
Each month we provide information to members on an aspect of gardening. Our guest speakers and tour guides have provided us information on herbs, flowers, vegetables, fruit, pollination, xeriscaping, soil conditions, insects, and assorted other topics.
Community outreach is also extremely important to our club. Each year we seek ways to enhance the beauty of our town. We find a need we can fulfill and then do so. Occasionally these are in the form of donations such as the bubbler fountain; the clock on Main Street; and benches in parks and the cemetery. We also provide ongoing beautification such as planter boxes.
We take pride in our partnerships to achieve some of our goals such as the hanging baskets throughout the downtown area. We welcome opportunities to work with the City of Ridgefield, the Main Street Committee, the Ridgefield School District and others.
