Bridgewater Garden Club
The Mission of the Bridgewater Garden Club is to promote interest in all aspects of gardening, and to beautify, protect, and preserve the environment.
Our programs reflect the varied interests of our members.

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.
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.
Monday. April 24, 4:30-5:30 pm Marigolds Around the Library"
The Bridgewater Garden Club celebrates earth day with it's "Marigolds Around the Library" project. This earth day is designed to introduce young children, between grades pre-K-2, to seeding and how seeds become plants. This project will have two sessions. In this first session, April 24th, at 4:30 pm, young planters will gather at the Bridgewater library to listen to a short story time and lesson on growing plants from seed, plant their cell packs, and receive instructions for caring for the seeds at home. In the second session, to be held on May 31 at 4:30 pm, the young planters will bring their plants back to the Bridgewater library and plant them around the Bridgewater Library.
