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.  You can check out our activities and events for the Club year by clicking on the "2015-2016 Calendar" button.  This is a tri-fold calendar listing our activities.  Please print it and keep it handy!

UPCOMING EVENTS YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS!


May 5, 7:30 P.M., "Art and Design in the Small Garden" - Janet Schulz - Harrington Park Library, 10 Herring Street

PLUS - MEMBER PLANT SWAP
BRING A PLANT, TAKE HOME A PLANT!
Pot up a plant (or two or three) from your garden and trade them for ones brought in by a fellow member!


Have you ever visited a garden so large with 'Art' so expensive that there was nothing you could relate to? That's how Janet felt after attending a program about art in the garden. It inspired her to create "Art and Design in the Small Garden" a power point presentation that illustrates design and horticultural tips that will help you make a "masterpiece" in your own home garden. 

The program will be followed by a "Q" & "A" and refreshments.  

Hostess for the Evening: Esther Ross

April 30, 2016 - Garden Club Plant Sale - Boro Hall Parking Lot, Harrington Park - 9:00 A.M. - Noon
Perennials!  Homegrowns!

The Garden Club Plant Sale is scheduled for Saturday, April 30th in the Library parking lot from 9:00 A.M. until Noon. Of course, we rendezvous earlier at 8:00 A.M. to setup the sales area. As usual, we feature quality perennials and homegrown plants donated by our members.  The “homegrowns” are always a great hit!  We’ll also have a Garden Treasure table filled with garden-related goodies, and delicious crumb cake and a hot cup of coffee to enjoy as you shop!

The Plant Sale has two parts; the perennial sale on April 30th, and the annual sale, which is where you order annuals and pick-up the plants on April 30th. 

May 14, 2016 – Barrel Planting - 2:00 P.M.. in beautiful downtown Harrington Park. We take out the resident Alberta Spruce and ask you to be a tree sitter over the spring and summer. Don’t worry; if you can’t babysit a tree, we still need helping hands to plant the barrels with annuals. We also need “Water Wizards” to keep the barrels watered and maintained. Esther Ross, our Beautification Chair, will give us more information as the time gets closer. Please consider this a possibility as a way to help our Garden Club. It is a time commitment, but it is only for a week. 

June 4, 2016 – 10:00 A.M. - Tour of Members’ Gardens and Pot Luck Barbecue. We need gardens for this tour! Please let me know if you are willing to share your garden. Don’t be bashful, besides, you have lots of time to get ready for us! All kidding aside, we love all gardens and enjoy traipsing around from garden to garden with all their variations and their particular and individual beauty.

June 18, 2016 – Field Trip to Planting Fields Arboretum in Oyster Bay, New York. We’ll leave the Library parking lot at 8:30 A.M. sharp, and carpool to Oyster Bay. Docent led tour of the garden, followed by luncheon (probably at a restaurant on the water). There is a $4.00 entrance fee, and, of course, the cost of the luncheon. If you want a preview of the garden go to www.plantingfields.org.
