CAMDEN — Several members of the Camden Garden Club met on Monday morning, October 18 to prepare the Camden Village Green for winter. Seasonally, the club coordinates the monthly maintenance of the border beds wrapping the Village Green. Throughout spring and summer, and into the fall, the wide borders are weeded, raked, and pruned by the club.

The club combines efforts with the Town of Camden to beautify the Village Green and other public green spaces in Camden. In addition to providing a service to the community, the civic projects of the club provide enriching opportunities for the community to come together.

The club welcomes any new members to join its work days and enjoy the company of its members.

The Camden Garden Club is also involved in other civic projects each year, including the hanging baskets on lamp posts downtown in summer and the lighted wreaths in winter that will be hung this year prior to Thanksgiving.

The club also maintains seasonal  plantings and flowers in the Camden area, partners with the Camden Shade Tree Program to plant shade trees in Camden, and offers scholarship assistance to students pursuing related studies in natural science.

The Camden Garden Club is a registered 501c(3) nonprofit and member of the Garden Club Federation of Maine and National Garden Clubs, Inc. with a mission to cultivate the art of gardening to its fullest sense, develop and preserve beauty in and around Camden, and promote civic improvements, education, and conservation of natural resources.
