Club Information The Scarborough Garden Club was founded in 1975. The club meets at 12:30 PM on the 3rd Thursday of the month. Normally we would meet at The Hillcrest Retirement Community Recreation Center in Scarborough, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic our regular club meetings are by ZOOM.

Club meetings in the 2020-2021 season will be in September, October, November, February, March and April and June. The May meeting is for members only.

Projects of the club include maintaining the gardens at the historic Hunnewell House as well as the Garden of Hope at the Scarborough Campus of The Maine Medical Center.

The club awards a scholarship to a Middle School students to attend The Environmental Camp at Bryant Pond, ans a scholarship to a student in the Horticulture Program at Southern Maine Community College. We make donations to many local organizations.

An annual plant sale held the first Saturday in June is the principal fund raiser to support these many programs. The SGC is well known in the area for our beautiful, healthy locally grown plants as well as our Green Elephant Sale featuring gently used tools, pots, and books as well as decorative garden accessories.
Club Programs Our 2020 -2021 meetings will be by Zoom. These meetings are free and open to the public. If anyone who would like an invitation a meeting please send us an email.
