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.

Looking good and feeling good are New Year’s resolutions for gardens, as well as people, making pruning an essential part of good health for shrubs and trees. The Bridgewater Garden Club presents "Pruning Fundamentals" February 27 to review basics with veteran gardeners and to encourage gardeners reluctant to prune. What better guide than with Master Pruner, Roman Fabiyan, staff member at the beautiful Leonard J. Buck Garden, Far Hills.
