Club Information The Brewer Garden & Bird Club is celebrating 85 years!!! The club currently has 19 Active Members, 7 Associate Members and 3 Honorary Members over 90 years of age. The club was organized June 20, 1933 and became a Federated Garden Club in February 1, 1934.

The club has a very active and popular award winning Junior Garden Club. We maintain a Blue Star Marker on Wilson Street (Route 1-A) in Brewer, as well as a planter at the Brewer Boat Ramp.

In July of 2016 we teamed with the Purple Iris Foundation to plant "The Triangle Garden" between Wilson and State Streets in Brewer.

This coming year we will be planting a new garden at the Brewer Middle School on Parkway South.

We also have a member of our club who, through dedication and perseverance, helped to relocate, plant and re-dedicate former Bangor Garden Club''s Blue Star Marker with other Penobscot District board members.

At every meeting we learn about horticulture, birds and our environment, as well as what we plan to do to promote education in our community.

Annual fundraisers include a plant sale in June that we hold at the Brewer Historical Society on Wilson Street. This Fall we will be holding a bake sale at "Brewer Days" held September 8, 2018 at the Brewer Auditorium.

Please note that if schools are closed due to bad weather in the winter months, our club does not meet that day.
