Garden Club

DaffodilsSingleFounded in 1953, the Cornish Garden Club meets the third Tuesday of each month from March through October. Lectures on a variety of topics, workshops, and visits to local, private gardens and other sites occur throughout the year. The club also holds an annual picnic, winter tea, and silent plant auction. Members plant the tubs at the library, and on the Meeting House green in May, they maintain a decorative planting at the Cornish-Windsor bridge, provide flowers for Old Home Day, and run the Cornish Fair flower show in August. Lectures and workshops are usually open to the public and new members from Cornish and surrounding communities are always welcome. You do not have to be an experienced gardener to join us!
