About the Haddam Garden Club

 

Who We Are

The Haddam Garden Club (HGC) was founded on October 13, 1930 by Dr. Kate Mead and Mrs. Mary G. Hinds and has since become a non-profit 501(c)3 volunteer organization based in the town of Haddam, CT. We typically meet on the second Wednesday morning of the month and we strive to:

  • stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening and floral design among amateurs;

  • aid in the protection of native flora and fauna;

  • promote civic planting and conservation;

  • organize social activities for the benefit of our members; and

  • involve each member as an active participant.

Please visit our Meetings webpage for more information.

 

Our Civic Gardens

The Haddam Garden Club has established and is proud of the care we take in maintaining several gardens in Haddam, Higganum, and Tylerville which include:
 

  • Welcome Signs Throughout Town

  • Brainerd Memorial Library

  • Higganum Green & Gazebo

  • Haddam Green

  • Town Office Building

  • Municipal Transfer Station


We also create beautiful holiday floral arrangements for all of the municipal buildings.  For more information, please visit our Civic Gardens webpage.

 

Our Structure

Our basic structure consists of an Executive Board and several Standing Committees.  Additional committees are often added as the need arises.  Please see our most current description of the committees and their chairs.  For details of our club structure, please see the complete text of our By-laws.
