Club Information The Mt. Blue Garden Club meets nine times a year. Meetings alternate between afternoons and evenings.

Summer meetings are held in members gardens. We are happy that there are more men joining us each year
Club Programs In the spring through fall, our club members plant and maintain two public gardens in Farmington.

This year the Mt Blue Area Garden Club will host the Kennebec District Garden Clubs at the Annual District Area Meeting. We will meet at 9:30 A.M. on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at Calzolaio's Pasta Co., in Wilton, Maine. Our speaker, Reeser Manley has written a garden column for the Bangor Daily News and is co-author of "The New England Gardener's Year." He is once again ready to have another garden book published. He will sell and sign copies of the book after the meeting.

Four days later, on Saturday, May 21, 2016 our club members will be at the Meeting House Park, selling plants from their own gardens. The park is in Farmington, across the street from the Franklin County Court House. Come early for the best selection.

June is the month that we have our club's Annual Membership Luncheon. Every two years new officers are installed at the luncheon.

Also in June we participate in the GCFM 84th Convention, this year held in Bar Harbor, Maine. The convention is hosted by the St. Croix District Clubs.

During the Farmington Fair in September, the members create a garden display in the main hall. Several of us take turns sitting at the booth to answer gardening questions from the public. This past year we raffled off a beautiful hand-stitched quilt. The proceeds will be used for our scholarships for children to attend "Bug Camp" and high school graduates going to college for garden related classes.

In October the Mt. Blue Area Garden Club members will participate in the Kennebec District's Annual Fall Conference.

December finds us in Farmington, decorating the Titcomb House for Christmas. The house is circa 1846 and is open to the public on "Chester Greenwood Day" the first Saturday of the month.
