Celebrating 100 Years in 2013!
North Country Garden Club took root almost a century ago to become a thriving organization with members committed to the art and science of gardening, restoration, conservation of natural resources and horticulture.
We continue our Club’s founding members’ legacy in dedicating ourselves and our resources to our north shore community. We provide care and maintenance to the Francke Sanctuary in Brookville and the garden at historic Earle-Wightman House in Oyster Bay. We have provided grants for the restoration of a greenhouse at Bailey Arboretum and an herb garden at the Raynham Hall Museum. We award scholarships to high school seniors embarking on college studies in horticulture, conservation and environmental science. We raise funds to support over thirty environmental, horticultural and civic organizations.
We invite you to explore our website and learn about our work at “North Country”.
