We are a group interested in the beautification of our town Winchester, as well as in gardening, floral arranging, improving the home.. We offer educational meetings and the opportunity to become an active participant in a delightful group of women working together.
Contact us if you would like to receive more information. To join our club, a membership may be found by clicking the membership tab.
We are members of the
Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts
National Garden Clubs, Inc.
We are happy to announce we will be still meeting monthly as in the past – however it will be virtual over zoom. After much discussion we are realizing the challenges that we will all share, not being comfortable to meet a person due to various health concerns, children at home while attending school remotely, gathering in large groups inside, etc. All contributed to our board’s decision.
It was decided that we would continue to meet on Wednesdays, as that has been our tradition. We will still meet on the third Wednesday of every month, but in the evening at 7 PM. Mary Grassi and committee are working on programming which will be brought to you over Zoom Webinar. Just think each month you’ll have a front row seat.
Please mark your calendar for September 23 at 7 PM and look for the Zoom Webinar invite that will be sent to your email. We realize our first meeting won’t be on the third Wednesday in September, with school beginning the week of September 14th, ,we thought it best to postpone the meeting to the following week. For those of you who are not familiar with Zoom or could benefit from a tutorial please let us know and we would be glad to put one together for you.

Dear Garden Club Members,
We hope you are well and enjoying the spring weather. The gardens are benefiting from all the April rain and are now starting to put on a beautiful show for us.
As you know, we are sadly unable to have our Annual Plant Sale this spring. However, some of our gardens are still be producing as if we WERE having the sale. Many of us are dividing our perennials right now, and with so many of us putting extra time into our gardens, we thought it would be fun to have a PLANT SWAP among our members!
Here’s how it will work:
-Divide any perennials you’d like to share during the next 3 weeks/until the end of May.
-Send an email to Christine Schmitt with:
Brief description of the types of plants (e.g. Blue Angel Hosta, Stella D’Oro Daylilly, etc).
How many you have of each.
Your address/pick up location.
Christine will assemble all of the information and then we will email all our club members with one full list of plants available for “adoption” and where to get them.
We will target TUESDAY JUNE 2 for plant pick-up. Plant adoption will be contactless—just drive up to the designated spot and take your new plants home.
Please email Christine at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or if you need some pots—she can drop some off.
Being able to garden is a bright spot in our time at home right now, and we hope you will enjoy sharing some of your plants with our club!
Stay safe & be well,
Dot and Cathy
After much thought and with consideration for our members’ good health, we feel it best to cancel the upcoming WH&GC March 18th meeting. As we have learned in the recent days, the most effective measure we have to not stress our medical systems is to practice social distancing.Together, we feel cancelling the meeting is the responsible decision and represents our commitment to our membership and the greater community.
We apologize to those members who were planning to participate in the “WH&GC’s Got Talent” program and hope to reschedule at a future date.
