Who We Are

The Talbot County Garden Club is known for its “good and green works” that benefit the Talbot County community. The club was established in 1917 to enhance the natural beauty of the local environment by sharing knowledge of gardening, maintaining civic gardens, supporting civic greening projects, encouraging the conservation of natural resources, and fostering the art of flower arranging. Noteworthy projects include grounds maintenance at the Talbot Historical Society, Talbot County Free Library (Easton), and the Fountain and Children’s Gardens in Idlewild Park; greenery installations for Easton’s Rail Trail and U.S. Post Office; plus an ever-growing number of outreach activities. There are currently 112 active, associate and honorary members.

Bringing the Joy of Gardening to Others

Talbot County Garden Club members gathered at the Easton Family YMCA on Peachblossom recently for garden therapy. The participants were an enthusiastic group of adults living with disabilities from The ARC’s local day program and Benedictine Programs and Services group homes. Each attendee left with a personalized pot of herbs to nurture and savor… and the promise of even more garden-related opportunities ahead!

Talbot County Garden Club Brings Comfort to Hospice Families and Patients

Talbot Hospice’s motto is “Life should not be measured by the number of days, but the quality of days.” And the Talbot County Garden Club contributes to that quality by providing floral arrangements for each holiday. It’s a labor of love for many of our members.
