The Garden Club of East Hampton was founded in 1914 and incorporated in the State of New York in 1998.
The purpose of the Garden Club of East Hampton is to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening, to share the advantages of membership by means of educational meetings, conferences, correspondence and publications, and to restore, improve and protect the quality of the environment through educational programs and action in the fields of conservation and civic improvements.
To that end, we seek to beautify East Hampton through the creation and maintenance of public gardens including the Mary Nimmo Moran Garden, the Mimi Meehan Native Plant Garden, Rachel’s Historic Dooryard Garden and the Brightwell Heritage Apple Trees at Mulford Farm, the Millstone Garden Park on Main Street, the Brick Courtyard Garden at the East Hampton Library, the Pollinator Garden at Town Hall, and in collaboration with others, the East Hampton Railroad Station, the East Hampton Post Office, the Nature Trail, and the Amagansett Native Orchid Restoration Project.
The Garden Club of East Hampton also provides scholarships to East Hampton High School students to study field ecology and botany with our partners at the Third House Nature Center, and organizes lectures and events open to the public in accordance with its mission as stated above.
