Organized in 1932 in Ellsworth, Maine, the Ellsworth Garden Club is over 80 years old and still growing. We joined the Garden Club Federation of Maine in 1935 and thus began a long history of civic projects, educational programs and flowers shows. We are interested in you! Are you interested in joining or need more information? Contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org or US mail: PO Box 722, Ellsworth, ME 04605. Click here for a membership form to print and mail.

2021 yearbooks are ready! They are being distributed in person and by US mail. If you haven't already, please notify the club how you would like to receive yours.
The Ellsworth Garden Club prioritizes the health and safety of our members and communities. In spite of canceling most in-person events in 2020, we managed to keep on top of many ongoing projects by gardening at a distance. We are planning 2021 under the assumption that the first part of the year will be under similar restrictions as last year. Our hope is that by mid/late summer, we will again be able to host in-person events.
Be ready this spring to enjoy a new walking tour of Historic State St. in Ellsworth with notable trees. This joint project with the Ellsworth Historical Society produced an interim walking tour document which you can download or print. Take the tour. We welcome your feedback. Send your suggestions to email@example.com
Starting in April we expect to work in Donald Little Park and other community locations. There's plenty to do this year. If you have any questions about working at the park, contact Judith Povich 667-8934. Work will also continue weekly on Tuesdays on the St Dunstan's project. Contact Anita Findlen 356-9889. For other community cultivation projects we will send out email or contact Monica Moeller at 667-8919.
