The Boothbay Region Garden Club was organized in 1931, one of the first eight organized garden clubs in Maine, and federated in 1933 with The National Garden Clubs, Inc. as a non-profit group.
The mission of the club is to promote interest in the art and practice of gardening, horticultural education, and the beautification of the Boothbay Region.
We usually meet monthly on the second Wednesday of the month at the St.Columba's Episcopal Church, at 32 Emery Lane, Boothbay Harbor, Maine 04538. Please check our BRGC Calendar for specific time, program, site change and/or other information.
Our work covers public buildings with window boxes, wreaths and plants, and maintaining many public gardens in the area. Scholarships are provided for YMCA camperships and to college students who want to further their education in environmental studies. Activities for residents of the Gregory Wing at St. Andrews Village are provided by the Garden Therapy Committee. Additionally, club members have assisted students at our local schools with gardening projects.
The Boothbay Region Garden Club has fourteen currently active committees, some of which help the Officers to organize and run the Club and some of which focus on community involvement and service. Members are invited to join all of these committees, depending on their interest and experience.
The Boothbay Region
The coastal towns of Boothbay and Boothbay Harbor, Maine are perfect destinations for a reprieve from hustle of every day. Between their rich history, quaint local shops and boutiques, delicious dining and world-class boat excursions, there are all kinds of fun things to do in these picturesque towns. A 1,000-foot long footbridge connects the east and west sides of the Harbor, allowing easy access for visitors to enjoy an abundance of activities. You will be delighted by the quiet coves, rocky shores, island lighthouses and the charm of the local community!
For more information about these areas, please visit the Boothbay Region Chamber of Commerce website or stop by their location at 192 Townsend Avenue.
