Thank you to our "Help Hopkinton Bloom" Sponsors!

We want to express our appreciation to the local businesses who generously donated to our "Help Hopkinton Bloom" site sponsorship drive. With their help we will be able to refurbish older planted areas, work towards replacing our aging planters and enhance our town plantings.

Please join us in supporting our sponsors and recognizing their contribution to our community.

Opportunities are still available to sponsor one of our club's planters or sites. We would welcome your participation in our program! If you are interested, please email us at

"Creating an Imaginative Landscape"

with Tom Strangfeld

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Free and open to the public! 

Tom will present and comment on the design and creation of two imaginative gardens in Wellfleet, MA. The design goal was to provide the clients with as many unique outdoor experiences as possible while respecting the aesthetic and ecological character of the site.

Tom Strangfeld has been designing and building landscapes in MA for over 40 years. During a thirty-year career at Weston Nurseries, he planted trees in Boston’s Public Garden, appeared on the PBS series “This Old House”, and installed landscape, complete with a cave, for Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler. He designed and built a garden at the Concord gravesite of gardening guru and TV star James Crockett. He has spoken at the Arnold Arboretum, the Radcliffe Seminars, and the Museum of Fine Arts, and is a former president of the MA Nursery and Landscape Association. He is a member of the Horticulture Club of Boston and is still an active landscape designer, builder, and grandpa.

This program will be held at Faith Community Church, Room 218, 146 E. Main Street in Hopkinton. Our club’s general meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. The speaker portion is at 7:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public. New members are welcome any time during our club year.

 Come learn with us!

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Hopkinton Cultural Council through the Massachusetts Cultural Council LCC program.
