Who We Are
The Talbot County Garden Club was established in 1917 to help enrich the natural beauty of the environment by sharing knowledge of gardening, fostering the art of flower arranging, maintaining civic projects, supporting projects that benefit Talbot County, and encouraging the conservation of natural resources. Noteworthy projects include: maintaining the grounds of the Talbot Historical Society, Talbot County Free Library, and the Five Corner's Fountain Garden, and Frances Plate Children’s Garden at Idlewild Park, as well as numerous other activities.
