The Mission of the Bridgewater Garden Club is to promote interest in all aspects of gardening, and to beautify, protect, and preserve the environment.
Recent topics have included Floral Design and Flower Arranging, Planting and Maintaining Terrariums, Proper Pruning Techniques, Worm Composting, Creative Landscape Design, Vegetable Gardening in Containers, Herb Gardening, and Growing Cacti and Succulents.
In keeping with our mission statement, our members participate in a number of community projects. At the Bridgewater Branch of the Somerset County Library, we plant and help maintain the plantings in the inner courtyard and the perennial garden at the entrance, provide horticultural displays for the customer service desk and wildlife displays for the children’s room, and conduct Saturday children’s programs and workshops. We participate in Bridgewater Township roadside clean up, provide floral arrangements for the Lyons VA Hospital, and decorate the Wellness Community Center for the Holidays.
Our Monthly Meetings
Most meetings are held at 9:30 am on the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Somerset County Library, North Bridge St. & Vogt Drive, Bridgewater, NJ. For more information, go to our Calendar of Events.
May 29, 2018 meeting
"Gardening with Deer". An oxymoron that would make any gardener gasp; nevertheless, Marc Zukovich will tangle the problem at the next Bridgewater Garden Club meeting May 29. He will discuss methods of discouraging deer browsing as well as selection of plants that are more deer resistant.
Marc is founder and president of Sterling Horticultural Services since 1988. In addition, he is an adjunct professor of horticulture at the County College of Morris.
You are welcome to this free program at Bridgewater Public Library, Vogt Dr., Bridgewater, Tuesday, May 29 at 10:30.
