Developed from the Brockton Branch of the Massachusetts Civic Federation, the Brockton Garden Club was founded in November of 1929 with 74 Charter Members.
Garden Club Plant Sale, May 18, 2019
The Garden Club held another succesful plant sale with many contributions of perennial and annual plants from garden club members, from local gardeners and nurseries. The set up began early with volunteers working to label and distribute plants at the city's park department site. The sale began at 8:30 a.m. and members kept busy helping gardeners make selections. The Massachusetts Horticultural Society provided Master Gardeners to answer gardening questions. A raffle of novel spring decorations and hanging plants ended the event. After clean up, members shared lunch organized by hospitality committee chair Lisa Landerholm and helper Carol Beffert-Banks at the Park Dept. offices. It was a partly cloudy day, and the hope of a beautiful spring was in the air. (Photos by Janet Trask)
