The Pinelands Garden Club is a non-profit organization whose mission is to encourage the art of gardening and the study of horticulture, to aid in the protection and conservation of natural resources, especially species unique to our New Jersey Pinelands, to promote civic beauty in our local area and create friendships among residents.

 

The club was founded by Ellen Roche on May 15, 1971 and admitted to the Garden Club of New Jersey, Delaware Valley District 7 in May 1974.  The PGC is a proud member of the National Garden Clubs, Inc. and the Central Atlantic Region, District 7.  The PGC has a partnership with the Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge, Inc. and the Pinelands Preservation Alliance.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Dear Garden Club Friends,

 Wow what a year it has been and we survived it together! At this time I want to thank all of you for your support and understanding.  Throughout it all, we did get a lot accomplished.  We held meetings outside in the park; had garden cleanups at the Blue Star Memorial, Butterfly Garden, Tomlinson Park., Herb Garden, and planted Sprint flowers on Main Street--the containers look beautiful!  Six of our members invited us to tour their beautiful gardens.  At members homes our book club participants shared and learned so many things about gardening, birds, and the environment.  Members provided garden therapy to Jackson Manor and Medford Care residents.  And lastly, we held an end-of-year Potluck Picnic and Plant Exchange at Smithville Park and enjoyed reuniting with many of our members!
