Harrington Park, New Jersey

The Garden Club of Harrington Park welcomes you to our website.  Please browse around the site - we've got lots of good information including our monthly newsletter, what to do monthly in your garden, and pictures of the barrels the Garden Club plants each year under the "Downtown Beautification" button.  

Just to tell you a little bit about us; the Garden Club of Harrington Park holds General Meetings the first Thursday of every month (except when otherwise noted) September through June in the Harrington Park Library (second floor).  The meetings begin at 7:30 P.M. and include a lecture by a guest speaker on various gardening topics.  Each meeting we have a floral contest, whereby members interpret a given theme.  We have a Field Trip at the end of our Club year, along with a luncheon.  Our meetings are open to everyone who loves a garden and gardening.  When we can hold meetings again, please check out our activities and events for the Club year by clicking on the "2021-2022 Calendar" button.  This is a tri-fold calendar listing our activities.  Please print it and keep it handy! 

To learn more about the Club, please click on the "About Us" where you will find information on membership and what we do as a Garden Club.  Mostly, we have a lot of fun as a group of folks who share a common interest -- the love of gardening!

The Garden Club of Harrington Park is not able to meet at the public library in Harrington Park since it is closed due to the Covid virus.
We still don't know when the social distancing regulations will be lifted. Until that time the Library can't be re-opened for public meetings because of space limitations.

We will keep you posted on our web site, as well as updating through email if you are a member/friend of the Garden Club of Harrington Park. In the meantime, if you would like your email added to our list, please click the contact button at the bottom of this page.
Happy 30th Anniversary!!!
