In 1995 a group of Pelham residents had an idea: they wanted to bring Pelham residents, who enjoyed gardening, together to form a club. Their mission, as they saw it, was to make friends, share gardening ideas, tips and techniques, visit gardens, work together to beautify the town and have fun. We’re happy to say that after all these years the Pelham Garden Group, as they are now known, continues to be faithful to this mission.
This group of gardening enthusiasts has invested countless hours to make Pelham an attractive place to live. Here are a few of the projects the group does: Spring and fall clean-up and pruning at the Historical Society Building, pruning and planting at the library, decorating the town common for Christmas. And the list goes on. No town funds are used; all funds are raised through dues and the group’s annual plant sale.
