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 in Massachusetts. Thus began the Shrewsbury Garden Club. Today the Shrewsbury Garden Club is still dedicated to upholding the mission established by those original fourteen women.

57 Active members

We are a member of the following organizations :

The same spirit and vitality of our founding members is alive and well today. Celebrating the start of our 64th year in September we are still growing and continuing our great traditions!
