Welcome to the Greenfield Garden Club -
Serving all of Franklin County, Massachusetts, and beyond.
Please join us at one of our many meetings - and bring a friend!
The Extravaganza is Saturday, May 19th this year - from 9-3. We have joined the St James and Andrews Handmade Makers Mart on that day. Please start to single out and pot up plants to donate to the sale. If anyone has rhubarb, that was a request from a previous year. Bring tagged plants to the church front lawn Friday May 18 between 6 and 7 pm for sorting and pricing.
