New!  October 2016 Newsletter!

Committee note: Many, many thanks to the dedicated group of gardeners on the Lightkeepers’ Garden Committee. Despite the challenges of heat and little rain, they toiled all spring and summer to maintain the beautiful gardens.  The committee will not meet on Wednesday, October 12 or Wednesday, October 26, as noted in the recent newsletter.  We will resume our biweekly sessions when the garden wakes up in the spring!

The Community Garden Club of Cohasset was affiliated in March of 1960 and is a member of the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts (South Shore District) and the National Garden Club (New England Region).  Learn more about resources of our parent organizations…

Come visit one of our monthly meetings in Cohasset at which a presenter will discuss fine points of horticulture or show slides of exotic gardens from around the world – actually arrange flowers using new and exciting techniques!

Every fourth Tuesday of the month, September through November and February through April, we meet at the Second Congregational Church for coffee at 9 a.m. and for speaker presentation after a short business meeting at 9:30. In January we meet at the Lightkeeper’s Cottage on Cohasset Harbor; in May we have an annual meeting.  We offer horticulture meetings on the second Tuesday of the month and design workshops on the third Tuesday, usually at the Lightkeeper’s Cottage, 9:30.

 You are assured of a warm welcome.

“During 2014 I had the fine fortune of attending all four Schools offered by The Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts, accredited by National Garden Clubs, Inc.   I noticed the large number of people who had traveled from other states to take these courses. The schools are interesting, stimulating, fun and on our doorstep…or at least not states away from us. Here are some snapshots of moments from those courses….
