Do you like flowers? Landscapes? Meeting new friends and neighbors? How about contributing to your town? The Hopkinton Garden Club offers all this and more!
Club members offer a variety of gardening interests and experience. Some like to get their hands dirty, others prefer floral arranging or designing a garden. Whatever the preference, we are always learning! Everyone donates time and energy to plant and maintain Hopkinton's public spaces several times a year.
We'd love to have you join us! See our membership page for information.
Hopkinton Garden Club Wins First Place at Boston Flower and Garden Show
The Hopkinton Garden Club congratulates its members Henry Schmidt, Deborah Coleman, Kathy Yankee, Audrey Dempsey, Liz Swenson, and Merylyn Mezitt on winning the blue ribbon in the Design Division’s “Circle of Life” Club Competition.
“Circle of Life” requires a buffet table design for six or more set for a baby shower. Four competing clubs each select a baby (past or present) for their intended shower recipient. Our members chose Peter Rabbit as their “baby” thinking it would be fun to work with and easily accessorized by the participants personal rabbit themed pieces.
The group also received the Club Competition Award, a top honor for receiving 95 points or higher in the design scoring.
