About the Centerport Garden Club
The Centerport Garden Club was founded in November 1953 By Reba Bailey with a membership of 15. Now our membership numbers 72, plus ten active life members, most of whom reside in the Harborfields School District in Centerport NY, USA.
The Centerport Garden Club holds monthly meetings which feature speakers, workshops, or field trips, covering various aspects of horticulture, floral design, conservation, landscape design, pruning, birds, the environment, recycling, water gardens, and specific plant families.
Occasional field trips are taken to gardens, arboretums, flower shows, or nurseries.
Sometimes an evening meeting is held with a speaker on subjects of interest to family, friends, members and the public.
We’re a group of dedicated people who enjoy sharing our knowledge and our love of nature, gardening, horticulture, flower arranging/design with each other as well as with members in the community.
The Centerport Garden Club continues to present a flower show approximately every 1 ½ to 2 years. This is a judged show which is governed by the National Council of State Garden Club rules.
The purpose of the show is not only to teach our own members and showcase their work, but also to educate the general public on matters pertaining to design, horticulture, and conservation. Displays on conservation, recycling, civic beautification, and endangered species help achieve this goal.
