Welcome from the Garden Club of Windham!

Our Mission

Our mission is to aid in the revitalization of the Town of Windham, CT through education and the physical improvement of public property via a partnership with the town, which engages citizens to beautify their community and promotes civic responsibility and pride. The Garden Club aims to progressively improve the social capital of Windham by creating attractive public spaces to be used for community activities; including cultivating educational, artistic, historic, cultural and environmental resources.

To realize the educational aspect of our mission, we have held children’s planting activities during the Willimantic Third Thursday Street Festival, sponsor the Willimantic Wildlife Habitat initiative and have speakers to cover a wide range of gardening topics as part of most member meetings. To realize the physical improvement of public property, we have created and maintained public spaces with the Town Hall Garden and seasonal wreath, the North Windham School Garden, the Memorial Park Garden, the Main Street Café Town Parking Garden, the Willimantic Victorian Neighborhood Association Corner Pocket Garden, the Garden near Tony’s Pizza, the Willimantic Footbridge Garden, the Jillson Parcel Garden and the Windham Garden on the Bridge.

Thank you for visiting us on the web and we hope you can enjoy our public gardens and events as well!
