Organized in 1932 in Ellsworth, Maine, the Ellsworth Garden Club is over 90 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:   or US mail: PO Box 722, Ellsworth, ME 04605.  Click here for a membership form to print and mail.

The Ellsworth Garden Club prioritizes the health and safety of our members and communities, but we are pleased to be able to end Covid-19 pandemic restrictions.  For 2024 we will hold in-person meetings. Zoom will continue to be an option if you specifically request it. 

In April we began 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 starts in May 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 Bob Pepler at 412-0033.
