Co-President's Welcome Message for 2020-2021

Co-President's Welcome Message for 2020-2021
Welcome to the web site of the Windsor Garden Club, one of Connecticut's oldest garden clubs. Established in 1937, our mission is to promote an interest in gardening, wild plant life, trees, civic beautification projects and environmental issues and to work toward those ends.

We are a diverse and multi-generational club with monthly meetings generally held on the second Monday of the month with some changes due to Federal holidays. The coronavirus pandemic has limited group gathering size, impacting our meeting schedule, so please use the event calendar as your reference.

Most meetings include social time, and a guest speaker, followed by Club business. Club members serve on specific committees such as the following: 1) scholarship committee, 2) hospitality committee, 3) town beautification committee, 4) garden mart committee, 5) garden tour committee, and 6) the Windsor Historical Society garden committee. The garden mart (plant sale) and the garden tour (biannual) are the Club’s primary fund raising events.

In early winter we decorate holiday wreaths to distribute to town offices, facilities, and nursing homes. We offer field trips during the year, and typically hold social gatherings at WGC member gardens during the summer months.
