Our members come from New London and the surrounding towns drawn together by shared interests and enthusiasm for gardening, plant material design, civic beautification and improvement, protection of the environment and native species, and community service. The Club offers nine exciting program meetings each year; the programs are as diverse as stonewall building, recycling technology, and home vegetable gardening. Visitors are welcome to all the programs listed under the Program Calendar.
Civic Beautification of
New London is a quaint New England town nestled in the Lake Sunapee region of New Hampshire. Much of its charm is the result of the planting and maintenance by Garden Club members of many beautiful flowers and shrubs in several public areas. The Library, Beaches, Information Booth, Post Office, Gazebo, Historical Society, Town Buildings, and public gardens are all planted in the spring, cared for during the summer and put to sleep in the fall. This has been the main project of the Club since its inception.

Purpose of the Club
The purpose of the Club shall be to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening and flower arranging, to aid in the protection and perpetuation of desirable native plants and birds, to further civic beautification and improvement, and to cooperate with other agencies interested in these objectives. The Club will seek to promote these goals through scholarships awarded to individuals seeking post-secondary degrees relating to its purpose, donations to local charitable organizations with similar objectives, beautifying public gardens in the area, and educational outreach.
