Our Community Service Projects

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.

 

Bridgewater Garden Club Meeting April 26, 2022

Not sometime in the future but right now New Jersey’s changing climate is affecting our agriculture, gardens, and landscape.  Who better to explain these changes but Dr. Anthony J. Broccoli during his presentation at the April meeting of the Bridgewater Garden Club.  

Dr. Broccoli is a professor in the Dept. of Environmental Sciences at Rutgers University. His research on climate change and its immediate effects should be enlightening as gardeners and farmers of the area begin planning and planting this season’s crops as well as preparing for future changes in climate.

The meeting is scheduled for April 26, 11:00 at the Bridgewater Public Library, Vogt Dr., Bridgewater.  All adults are welcome to attend this lecture in Meeting Rooms A and B off the entrance area of the library.  Learn more about the Bridgewater Garden Club on our website bridgewatergardenclub.org or visit us on Facebook at BridgewaterGardenClubofNJ.
