Founded in 1964, our club has set out with these objectives in mind:

  • To promote interest in horticulture.

  • To increase knowledge of artistic use of plant material.

  • To further the conservation of natural resources.

  • To encourage and assist in civic projects.

General Meetings: Meetings will be held at the Senior Center within Newtown Community Center on the Fairfield Hills Campus, 8 Simpson Lane. Seven General Meetings are scheduled for the second Wednesday of the months of September, October, November, February, March, April and May. Business meetings begin at 6:00 pm. The program will begin at 7:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
