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.

Site Sponsors:
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 info@hopkintongardenclub.org.

"Going Native, Low Maintenance Trees and Shrubs"

with Betty Sanders

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

Free and open to the public! 

Native trees and shrubs evolved in New England without our help. Adapted to hot, dry summers and cold winters, resistant to browsing deer and local insect, they attract birds and butterflies, and add color to your landscape. Cultivars of native plants have changed the face of natives - expanding the color palette and options for the gardener. 

Betty holds Lifetime Master Gardener status with the MA Master Gardener Association, is a member of the Landscape Design Council, the Gardening Study Council and Environmental Council. She has studied gardening at the Arnold Arboretum, the New York Botanical Garden and the New England Wildflower Society and she holds a degree in Chemistry from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
Betty previously designed and maintained a two-acre garden which was selected for the Garden Conservancy Open Days Program. She is now creating a 90-percent-plus native garden at her new home.

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.
