About Our Club  

The Port Washington Garden Club was established in December 1932 to promote gardening and beautify the City of Port Washington.  In the early the years, the club sponsored flower shows, and organized gardening classes and seminars.  Its holiday decorating contest was popular for decades.

Club members also landscaped the Judge Eghart House Victorian Museum in Port Washington, installed plantings at the Port Washington Senior Center, and purchased and planted apple trees at the Port Washington Light Station museum.

More recently, our club has planted the gardens at our waterfront Rotary Park, landscaped at the city’s Niederkorn Library, established a fund to purchase trees for Port Washington parks and worked with the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity.  New gardening books and periodicals are also donated to the city library, part of the Eastern Shores Library System, annually.

Seasonal garden awards are also offered to highlight noteworthy gardens around the city.  If you have a garden to recommend, we'd like to hear from you.

The Port Washington Garden Club is currently building an endowment to fund a scholarship for college and graduate students in horticulture and related fields.  Several scholarship awards have already been given out!  See the Scholarship section for more information.
