Who are we?
The Dunbarton Garden Club was founded in 1934. Membership is open to all residents of Dunbarton and also to interested folks in neighboring towns. Dues are set at a modest $10. Our current members are an eclectic mix of gender, marital status, seasoned gardeners, newbie gardeners, and even non-gardeners who like to participate in the fun of getting together as we make our town and our own gardens more beautiful.
Monthly meetings are held April through November with a Holiday party in December. See schedule for dates and times. Our agenda is varied: we have an annual plant swap, several guest speakers each year, garden tours and field trips. Some gatherings are devoted to working on community projects, making holiday decorations for our town buildings, cemeteries and churches, and we’ve even been known to use power tools, glue guns and paint to make garden items.
A relatively new endeavor is setting up and running a Food Concession on Old Home Day each year in September. Funds raised are put back into our community.
We support the Elementary School “Roots” Project and also make annual donations to the Ruth Hingle Memorial Scholarship Fund which is open to all graduating Dunbarton high school seniors. For an application and more information, contact The Dunbarton Community Scholarship Fund, c/o Nancy Sherman, 9 Kimball Pond Road, Dunbarton, NH, 03046, or call 774-4627.
We are currently a 501c3 Non-Profit organization. Donations of money or materials are always appreciated and generally
tax-deductible; consult your tax professional for specifics.
