Club Information Established in 1953 and serving Falmouth, Maine and the Cumberland County area. Meetings held on the third Tuesday of the month from 7-9 PM at the Falmouth Memorial Library, 5 Lunt Road, Falmouth.

Our meetings are held in the evening to accommodate persons who work during the daytime hours. The garden club provides scholarships to community members concentrating on horticultural endeavors and members maintain library gardens as well as provide weekly summer flowers for the librarian's desk.
Meetings can include speakers, hands on projects or garden tours.
Club Programs Over the summer, club members made several field trips. In June, they toured the Old Sheep Meadows Nursery in Alfred, Maine. They were able to view the 5 acre nursery which specializes in roses and daylilies. The roses were in full bloom and members were able to purchase directly from the farm. In July, Harriet Robinson of Otisfield, gave us a tour of her gorgeous personal gardens. Summer activities ended with a lovely tour of the Longfellow Arboretum in Portland by Jeff Tarling, City Arborist.

On Tuesday October 16th, Bob Cleveland, past president of the Main Orchid Society will present information on the care of orchids.
On November 20th, Kathy Nadeau, will help members create a small holiday wreath.
Location for both activities will be at the Mason-Motz Activity Center in Falmouth.
Club members are now eagerly digging up a variety of perennials to over-winter for next years plant sale.
