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.
Mystery inspires Bridgewater Garden Club’s January 28 meeting. Guided by the club’s own Patti Cerrato, registered members will create floral designs from materials in individual Mystery Bags. Award-winning Cerrato will share her own tips and insights to encourage partakers in the design challenge. Visitors and nonparticipating members are welcome to observe the activities, noting new design information.
All adults are invited to the meeting beginning about 10:30 at the Bridgewater Library, Vogt Dr., January 28.
