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.
2015 is Hopkinton’s 300th anniversary!
We were proud to participate in several events to help celebrate this special time in our town’s history:Hopkinton 300th Anniversary House and Garden Tour
Historic House and Garden Tour brought us together with the Hopkinton
Historical Society and the Women’s Club to develop a “first time” event
with all three clubs working together. On June 14th, six gardens and six
period homes were opened to the public for a tour of some of Hopkinton’s
unique treasures. Designated members represented our club at meetings
held by the 300th Committee who managed the event. Our club worked to
secure the gardens to be toured, obtain sponsors, help our members
prepare their gardens for the tour, and serve as docents for the event.
Claflin Memorial Fountain Restoration Installation and Planting
Hopkinton’s anniversary events included restoring the1907 Claflin Memorial Fountain on the Town Common to working order. Inoperable for decades, a metal conservator recreated missing pieces and rebuilt the fountain to return it to its former splendor. In September, several club members responded to a request from the conservator to our club to help plant 700+ annuals surrounding the restored fountain.
