Beach Garden Society
The Beach Garden Society
"Beautifying the Beach for over 30 years"
The Beach Garden and Horticultural Society is a vibrant group of people united by their appreciation of the beauty of our natural world, and the challenge of gardening in this area of shade and sandy soil.
BGS was established in 1985 by well-known gardener and founder of many horticultural societies, Dave Money, absorbing the East End Dahlia and Chrysanthemum Society. Today, BGS has almost 200 members, including keen amateurs, balcony gardeners, knowledgeable green-thumbers, professional landscapers and designers. Among our members there are Master Gardeners and several accredited Horticulture and Design Judges. But you do not have to be a gardening expert to join us! Our meetings feature great speakers, delicious refreshments, good fellowship, and an extensive library. In spring and fall we also have flower shows.
On the Saturday of the May long weekend, the BGS holds the BEST Perennial Plant Sale around. The school gym at Adam Beck is filled with thousands of plants - some from a local grower and many from our own members' gardens. There is something for everyone: native plants, selections for shade, sun, dry areas, even those very special "must haves" in our specially selected Connoisseur Collection.
