The Waltham Garden Club’s purpose is to promote the love and knowledge of gardening, plants, and flowers among the people of Waltham and surrounding communities.
The Waltham Garden Club is a non-profit organization run by a board of six officers and several committee chairpersons. We have over 70 members.
The Waltham Garden Club was founded in November 1941 and was federated in June of 1969.
Our most famous past member was Leola Fraim, who has a Hosta variety named after her. Her white-edged Hosta won the American Hosta Society’s prestigious President’s Exhibitor Trophy in 1992.
For Spring 2021, the Club is meeting virtually for education programs and in-person for nature walks or socially-distanced workshops. Normally, the Club has regular meetings on the third Tuesday of every month from September to May. Each monthly meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. with refreshments and socializing. At 7:00 p.m. the president, board members and committee chairs share reports and information about upcoming events. From 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. a guest speaker presents on a variety of topics or members enjoy a hands-on workshop.
Club members also join together throughout the year in many community events or civic development programs.
