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.

"The Entry Courtyard Garden"
with Tom Strangfeld
October 21st, 7:30 p.m.
Faith Community Church, Route 135, Hopkinton, MA
Open to the public!!
Do you realize that your front yard is the first room your guests enter? Unfortunately, most landscapes are designed to hide an ugly concrete foundation, even if it doesn't exist. This presentation will show you some history, theory and design of the residential landscape, with examples of the good and the not so good. The goal? To help you design the “outside” of your home in the same way you design the “inside”. Spaces to enjoy, to live in. Much more than just a lawn to mow and shrubs to shear.
Tom Strangfeld is a respected landscape designer, educator and horticulturalist with a keen interest in reaching out to people directly in their homes. He urges homeowners to avoid what he sees as the “repetitious, soulless and boring” landscaping common in many suburban yards. Tom’s career spans nearly forty years including many years at Weston Nurseries. His varied projects have included planting trees in Boston's Public Garden, appearing on the PBS series "This Old House", installing a landscape (complete with a cave) for Aerosmith's Steven Tyler, and designing the garden at the Concord gravesite of gardening guru and TV star James Crockett.
Tom has lectured at the Arnold Arboretum and Radcliffe Seminars, and is a former president of the Massachusetts Nursery and Landscape Association, an industry trade group. He is a five time top prize winner for his exhibits at the New England Spring Flower Show. Tom is a member of the Horticulture Club of Boston and is still an active landscape designer and builder.
