Welcome to Gardening!!

Our mission is to educate our membership and the public in horticulture, floral design, nature, and wildlife. 
To that end, our monthly meetings will have interesting speakers on relevant topics.
We host workshops, field trips and plant exchanges. Some of our very talented members
 are also more than willing to share their expertise with the group.

Our garden club members are very community minded also and work with the Lyons Hospital,
Cerebral Palsy, Mobile Meals, and four community gardens in Westfield.

The Rake and Hoe Garden Club is a member of the Garden Club of NJ,
which is also a member of the National Garden Clubs, Inc.
