The Portsmouth Garden Club is involved in many activities that occur throughout the year such as Flower Shows, Workshops and Tours as well as Civic Beautification Projects. We show our support for our State Flower Shows through attendance and event participation.

 

Throughout the years, our members have entered their award-winning arrangements to the Rhode Island Spring Flower and Garden Show that is held in Providence, RI and the Newport Flower Show organized by The Preservation Society of Newport County, Newport, RI.

 

Over the past several years, we have hosted, along with Atria Aquidneck Place, the Portsmouth Garden Club Flower Show which is a non-juried show held in May at Atria Aquidneck Place, Portsmouth, RI.

 

In 2018 and 2019 the club held a Federation Flower show, once at Atria and once at the Portsmouth Public Library.

 

We are extremely active in civic beautification throughout Portsmouth, maintain 2 public gardens and making wreaths for public buildings during the holidays.

 

We invite you to view the photographs of our events and endeavors by clicking on the choices from the left-hand bar.

 

Meetings are held monthly at the Library for club members and guests. _________________
