The Milton Garden Club, founded in 1924, has a long- standing tradition of promoting gardening, education and community service. The Club’s annual calendar is filled with lectures, hands-on experiences, flower shows, tending of community gardens, field trips and planning and implementing our fundraisers.
Members maintain the Lily Corner, the historic Powder House, the gardens in front of the Milton Public Library, the Horse Trough, town planters and we create decorations for the Robert Bennett Forbes House. In addition, the Club maintains an historic garden designed by Fletcher Steele for Katherine Spalding, a past president of the Milton Garden Club. We have documented 9 Milton gardens for the Archives of American Gardens at the Smithsonian. A major focus of the Club’s conservation agenda is the Neponset River. Once dotted with mills and other industrial sites, the river-after much remediation- is cleaner than it has been in two centuries.  The Neponset River Educational Program was designed by our Club to educate fourth graders about the history and importance of our River through conservation. The Club has awarded grants to entities in the town that are symbiotic with our mission. In 2013 we won a Partner’s for Plants Award from the GCA to restore the Native Plant Garden at the Trailside Museum. Annual fundraisers – a greens sale- perennial sale-compost sale sustain the Club’s programs and projects and contribute to a spirit of camaraderie. We have received awards from local organizations recognizing us for many years of service. We welcome all of you to come and visit, we would be happy to show you around.
