DUNBARTON - A GREAT PLACE TO GROW!
FALL MUM SALE
As a non-profit we rely on fundraising and donations to provide funding for the club. This is important because we use this money to sponsor several local and town events. Our Annual Mum Sale has become our one big fundraiser event of the year.
The Dunbarton Garden Club Annual Fundraiser Mum Sale is commonly held for a long weekend in early September each year (dates and times posted in FB and via physical signs around town). All colors of Mums, Asters, the cabbage looking plant, corn stalks and all sizes of PUMPKINS!
Location: See the tent at Pages Country Store 15 Concord Stage Rd. (Hwy 77), We thank the citizens of Dunbarton and surrounding communities for their support each year! Proceeds help support the DGC annual scholarship, children's community engagement events and various other activities.
HALLOWEEN! Witch means all you ghoulishly dedicated DGC members are on the Commons to help make that night a fun one for all the little ghost & goblins and their families that will be showing up on Halloween to enjoy another Dunbarton Garden Club
Community Tree Lighting
Each winter holiday season, the DGC decorates the town common with lights and hosts a community tree lighting ceremony complete with music, snacks and of course, Santa.
Dunbarton Old Home Day Volunteering
Each year the DGC helps to promote and volunteer at our town's old home day event. You can often find us in the parade, behind the food tent or helping to monitor and support various activities held during that day.
Dunbarton Elementary School - Amaryllis Project
This year the Dunbarton Garden Club gifted each class at Dunbarton Elementary School an indoor gardening project to welcome the new year. Every class was given a kit that included an Amaryllis bulb and planting supplies. In addition they received instructions and printed information to supplement their growing experience. The project was well received by the teachers and students and will hopefully spark interest in plants, gardening and the environment. It is a lovely way to begin the new year, observing the growth of s beautiful Amaryllis flower.
We are sharing some photos from Mrs. Kim Belanger’s class as they began the project.
