The Monson Garden Club was organized in 1933. The purpose of the Club is: to promote an interest in gardening; to work for the preservation of wildflowers and native plants and to cooperate in efforts for civic beautification in the Town of Monson, Massachusetts.
Today, with membership limited to 35 members, the Club is very active in the beautification of Monson. Our annual Plant Sale now raises enough money to support more than $1000 in scholarship funds, numerous plantings of flowers and shrubbery throughout the town, gifts to the Library and financial support for beautification projects by other groups.
