          Membership

We welcome new members!

 

Yearly membership dues are $20 and collected in the spring.

Your “magic” Sandwich Garden Club membership card entitles you to a 10% discount at Scenic Roots Garden Center on Route 6A and Soares Nursery in Falmouth.

The Sandwich Garden Club usually meets on the first Sunday of the month from September to May at 1:30 at Sandhill Community Center at 16 Dewey Avenue, Sandwich or on Zoom. In June we meet at a member’s home and garden for a potluck picnic and a brief annual meeting.

Our Club's focus is growing techniques, garden design, and science-based horticultural knowledge.


If you enjoy getting in the dirt, come join our gardeners and have fun with us. See below for possible projects and committees.

Civic Committee
The Civic Committee adds to the beautification of our community by planting and maintaining two municipal gardens in town as well as five historic signs sites. We brighten the winter holiday by decorating the Town Hall meeting room. The club provides funding to local nonprofits related to gardening and conservation and scholarships to support students pursuing careers in landscaping and environmental sciences.

Our members maintain two municipal gardens with annual cleanup, deadheading, pruning, and  garden evaluation for fertilizing, dividing, removing, or planting new specimens.
