Conserving Local Gardens Since 1928
The Chappaqua Garden Club is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of local gardens. With approximately 100 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, collaborate on library programming, and engage seniors in projects at the New Castle Community Center. Our community projects include:
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 time to any of six main interest groups:
Work with the Town of New Castle to beautify green public spaces. Help design, plant, and maintain certain areas in the town.
Learn principles of floral design and create arrangements for the home, personal enjoyment, flower shows and other Garden Club activities.
This very special park is full of carefully selected plants. Members work together each week to maintain the park. Come once or get involved regularly- you will learn something and have fun!
