Conserving Local Gardens Since 1928

The Chappaqua Garden Club is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of local gardens. With over 80 members from all over Westchester County, the club is a part of District IX in the Federated Garden Clubs of New York State.

We devote our time to the beautification of public spaces, educating the children and adults in the community, and practicing organic and sustainable gardening techniques.

The club's community outreach includes hands-on gardening and planting projects.  We provide weekly flower arrangements for the Chappaqua Library and visit elderly residents and the Victoria Home in Ossining for garden therapy.  Our community projects include:

  • Planting thousands of daffodils
  • Plantings at the Gedney 9/11 Memorial
  • Renovation of the Rock Garden at the New Castle Art Center
  • Plantings at schools and the library
  • The "Pocket Park" in downtown Chappaqua
  • Triangle plantings at the Duck Pond and the intersection of Rt. 120 and 117
  • Planting sidewalk containers throughout town

Whether you want to meet new friends, learn special gardening techniques or attend floral arranging workshops - there are many interest groups to choose from!  Members can devote their free time among six main interest groups:

Civic Improvement

Working with the Town of New Castle to beautify green public spaces. We design, plant and maintain certain areas in the town.

Flower Arranging

Learning about the principles of floral design and creating arrangements for the home, personal enjoyment, flower shows and other Garden Club activities.

Horticulture

Learning abut cultivation and conservation of plants (particularly native plant species) and discussing issues in garden practices. This year, we begin a special focus on sustainability in our gardens.

Landscape Design

Exploring different ways to design gardens, such as adding a water feature, installing a simple bird and butterfly garden. The group brainstorms and learns together.

Garden Therapy

Preparing flowers to take to the Victoria Nursing Home in Ossining, and working with residents there to create floral arrangements to bring cheer to their rooms.

Junior Education

Helping children appreciate, understand, and relate to the natural world at a basic level, in order to help them make a connection between what they do and what happens in their environment.
