A Little About Us

On June 24, 1957, a group of fourteen women met at the home of Ann Claflin, to discuss the formation of a garden club in  the town of Shrewsbury. Thus began the Shrewsbury Garden Club. Today the Shrewsbury Garden Club is still dedicated to upholding the mission established by those original fourteen women.  We have 62 Active members, 13 Supporting members and 1 Honorary member.

We are a member of the National  Garden Clubs, Inc., The Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts,Massachucetts Audubon Society, Tower Hill Botanical Garden and The New England Wildlife Society.

The same spirit and vitality of our founding members is alive and well today. Celebrating our  anniversary this year, we are  “sixty years and still growing” and continuing our great traditions!

Civic Projects

Our club is responsible for overseeing the maintenance of many town owned areas as well as having established a public Sensory Garden located at the Town Hall.

Our Adopt-a-Plot program gives residents and businesses an opportunity to participate in the beautification of the town by maintaining  a public space around town.

The Annual Scarecrows on the Common display was started by the Garden Club and has continued  for 13 years bringing excitement to the Town Common as part of the Spirit of Shrewsbury Fall Festival.

More information of these and other club involvements may be found on   Civic Projects link on the left.
