Membership and Committees

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 generally meets at 1:30pm on the first Sunday of the month from September to May at Sandhill Community Center, 16 Dewey Avenue, Sandwich. In June we meet at a member’s home and garden for a potluck picnic and brief annual meeting. Check the Member Programs page for details.
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.
The Civic Committee adds to the beautification of our community by planting and maintaining two municipal gardens in town as well as five historic sign sites. We also brighten the winter holiday by decorating the Old Town Hall meeting room. In addition, the club provides funding to local nonprofits related to gardening and conservation, as well as 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:
Mill Creek Park, Route 130, across from Old Town Hall
Oak Crest Cove Recreation Center, Quaker Meetinghouse Road
Historic District Signs
We enjoy adding beauty to our town. SGC members plant and maintain gardens that enhance five of Sandwich’s historic district signs:
Route 6A at Conway Realtors
The Visitor Center, Rte. 130
Two signs on Old Main St.
Route 6A & Main St.
Upon entering Town Hall Square, just up Main St.
The New Town Hall, Rte 6A & Tupper Rd.
Hydrangea Festival Committee
Our club participates in the Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival on a periodic basis, usually every other year. When we do participate, a committee is formed to coordinate with Festival staff, find people willing to open their gardens for tours, arrange tour docents, and advertise the festival.
Plant Education Committee
Use your plant expertise to help educate other members.
Plant Sale Committee
The committee oversees, organizes, and forms subcommittees to help carry out the many aspects of the sale, including soliciting plant donations from members, potting, pricing and labeling plants, delivering plants, and the setting up and taking down of the event at the Sandwich Town Green on Route 6A and Old Main St. All members are strongly encouraged to participate in the plant sale, our annual fundraiser, in some capacity.
This committee develops programs, workshops, and field trips for club members and guests.
