Welcome!

The Milford Garden Club has been in existence for over 60 years. Today, with over 120 members, this active club puts on numerous fund-raising activities including the popular Plant and Bake Sale in May and the annual Garden Walk in June. In addition, we hold monthly meetings (except in the summer months when we are all gardening!) and offer numerous field trips to area gardens.

We welcome you to join us!

 

The Plight of the Monarch Butterfly-And What We Are Doing About it!

 

With the Monarch butterflies' nectar and milkweed sources in a drastic state of decline, the Milford Garden Club is dedicating its members' time and energy to help improve the butterflies' natural habitat here in our area. It is our intent to create awareness in our community of the potential loss of this precious species, and begin the rebuilding of habitats in cour community's backyards and public areas so they once again may thrive.
Read more about the butterfly and what we are doing.

 

Join us at the YMCA Earth Day on April 27th and again on May 10 from 9-11 at the Milford Garden Club Plant and Bake Sale. We'd love to talk with you about what you can do about increasing the habitat for the Monarch and will be handing out free packets of milkweed seeds.
