A New Season

Another summer is coming to a close, bringing cooler nights, the full corn moon, the delights of our harvest season, and the beginning of our Holliston Garden Club year!

Our members represent a range of passions and interests: gardens full of blooming flowers, vegetable gardening, conservation, landscape design, floral design, and more. Dig in and join the fun!

We will be hosting a Holiday Floral Design Show on November 2nd, featuring Candice Morganstern, one of the most accomplished floral designers on the east coast.

And in March, just in time for another season of gardening, we are featuring a Vegetable Gardening Talk with Brittany Overshiner of Upswing Farm.

Check out our upcoming events calendar or contact us to learn more about what we have cooking!

How about gardening with less water, less fertilizer and less work? In this era of mandatory water bans and high water bills, sounds good, doesn’t it?

The Holliston Garden Club cordially invites you to learn more about xeriscaping.
What is xeriscaping, you ask? It is a landscaping and gardening approach that reduces or eliminates(!) the need for supplemental water from irrigation.
