SBGC where even more than plants... you'll find friends grow in gardens too!
Our mission is to promote a forum which inspires home gardening through education, community beautification, service, support and fellowship. This includes volunteer work and charitable contributions to gardening related causes in order to beautify the community.
The Saco Bay Gardening Club was founded in 2001 by a group of local residents to promote and inspire home gardening. The SBGC encourages area residents to share information, activities, experience, and materials related to gardening.
Growing every year, SBGC membership encompasses all age groups, ranging from beginners looking for information on starting their first garden to master gardeners happy to share their knowledge. Year round or part-time residents from Saco, Biddeford, Old Orchard Beach and surrounding areas are welcome to join.
The SBGC meets the first Thursday of each month in the Deering Room at Dyer Library in Saco at 6:00pm unless otherwise noted. Meeting agendas include guest speakers presenting a gardening related topic, round-table discussions, seasonal craft workshops, plant swaps, tours of members' gardens, and an evening of social networking. During the summer months, most meetings are held outdoors at one of our members' gardens and we also schedule activities between meetings such as BBQ's and Potluck parties. Annual membership cost is $15.00 per individual or $25.00 per family.
The club welcomes new members and visitors year round. Please visit one of our meetings at any time, they are the first Thursday of every month @ 6:00 pm at the Dyer Library, 371 Maine Street, Saco, Maine unless otherwise noted.
