Learn the art of pressed flower design. While your gardens are in full swing, preserve petals, flowers and leaves between pages to use in your designs. What a great way to practice the remembrance of things past!

Since 1933, the Garden Club of Woodbridge, Connecticut has provided residents of Woodbridge and surrounding areas a great opportunity to learn and share their interests in all things relating to gardening. We welcome the novice as well as the accomplished gardener and our programs appeal to individuals with a wide array of interests. The Club decided early in its history to concentrate its efforts in civic improvement toward landscaping and beautifying the center of town. This is still the club’s purpose, but we have expanded our beautification throughout Woodbridge and our activities include floral design, flower shows, horticultural therapy, bird life and conservation. We have designed, planted and/or maintain many town gardens, including the Darling House Herb Garden, the Massaro Butterfly garden, The Center Garden at the Library and the Adella Baldwin Stuart Garden at the corner of Meetinghouse Lane and Center Road. Leslie Martino, one of our members, designed The Memorial Garden at the Woodbridge Fire Department and The Garden Club of Woodbridge financially supported this project. We also developed and maintained a vegetable garden at the Senior Center with the harvest donated to the Senior Center for Tuesday and Thursday lunches.

The Scholarship Committee of the Garden Club of Woodbridge is pleased to announce the recipient of its annual scholarship.
Vera Ting was awarded the Club’s annual scholarship of $500.00. Vera will attend the University of Michigan in the fall where she plans on majoring in Evolutionary Biology and Art. The scholarship will support her long-term goal to become an ornithologist.
Emily Cosenza, the Club’s chairwoman for Birds and Conservation, represented the Garden Club of Woodbridge and attended the Senior Awards Night at Amity High School in June.
The Garden Club of Woodbridge would like to thank the Woodbridge community for supporting its annual spring Plant Sale. A portion of the proceeds from the Plant Sale is used to provide this annual scholarship to a Woodbridge student interested in majoring in fields of study related to agriculture, horticulture, landscape design, botany, plant pathology, geology, environmental studies, wildlife science or land management.
The Garden Club of Woodbridge congratulates Vera and wishes her well in all of her future endeavors.
