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 "2016-2017 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!

UPCOMING EVENTS YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS!


November 19, 2017 - 2:00 P.M. “Thanksgiving Centerpiece Workshop” –Conducted by Gerri Gibney – Fee
Library, Pre-Registration Required – contact themerchantmouse@aol.com or 201 768-2615 

Make your own one-of-a-kind centerpiece to grace your Thanksgiving table or to give as a hostess gift.  We’ve done this event for many years and always have a pretty good crowd. We’ll take you through the steps to create your own arrangement, however, the fun and intriguing thing about this is that they all turn out differently. And every arrangement is just as beautiful as the next. We supply everything; all you need to do is bring pruners or a sharp scissor. Members are charged $18.00 for materials, non-members $23.00.  Everyone is invited to join the fun - but, you must register!

"The love of gardening is a seed
that once sown never dies."
Gertrude Jekyll
 “Make-It and Take-It” you will make either a centerpiece or wreath. This year we’ve returned to the Williamsburg theme of holiday decorating and that means lots of apples and fruits. The Garden Club will supply the greens, the floral foam, some ribbon, and plastic containers for you to use for your centerpiece. However, if you have a favorite bowl or container to use for the piece, bring it along. In addition you need to bring pruners, do-dads, favorite ribbon, garden gloves, and extra greens from your garden. The “greens” are at your discretion (go ahead – cut some of your evergreens, it will make them happy!).

If you plan to make a wreath, please bring three coat hangers.

We'll also throw in a little history of holiday decorating, especially about the Williamsburg style; which, as many of you know, was never used in colonial Williamsburg, but now has become a tradition, and a nice one at that! If you want to use fruits in your arrangement, please bring them along, since this is a free “Make-It and Take-It” it would be too expensive for the Club to buy fruits!

In addition, we’ll give you a handout of some ideas for simple centerpieces you might want to use during the upcoming holidays.

If we celebrate together,
Or many miles apart;
I share Thanksgiving with you
In a corner of my heart.
