May Market
For almost 50 years the Club’s May Market has been a tradition and a great way to start the gardening season. Come for all your garden needs, a cup of coffee, and a bite to eat. More details here.

Suffield On The Green
We sponsor a booth at this popular town event to promote increased knowledge of our Club.
Ethel Wilson Memorial Herb Garden
The herb garden at the Phelps-Hatheway House is dedicated to Ethel Wilson, an avid herbalist and long-time Club member. 
Garden Therapy
Members work with residents at Parkway Pavilion Healthcare in Enfield CT and Suffield House in Suffield CT to assist them in creating flower arrangements for the dining and patient rooms. Members contribute flowers from their gardens in the spring and summer. 

Suffield Household Hazardous Waste Collection
Our Club started Household Hazardous Waste Day in the 1980s with support from the town. We continue raising community awareness on this important issue, planning, coordinating, publicizing and working on the day of the event to make it a success.
Civic Beautification 
We proudly maintain gardens at the Civil War Soldiers' Monument, the bandstand on the town green, the historical marker in front of the Kent Memorial Library, and the Bridge Street island. 

Junior Gardeners 
We  work with school and youth groups interested in gardening, flower arranging, and the environment. Our junior gardeners gain a greater appreciation of the natural world and learn new skills through hands-on activities. 

In 1940, our Club began planting dogwoods along historic Main Street. We currently maintain, with assistance from the town, over 200 trees. 

Phelps-Hatheway House Garden
A Connecticut Historic Garden owned by Connecticut Landmarks, this prestigious garden is one of our oldest devotions. Club members maintain the garden from April to October.

Sue Ann's Posies-To-Go

As president in 2004/5, Sue Ann Nealon challenged members to create arrangements to be delivered to the Suffield Community Aid’s homebound residents and recipients of Meals on Wheels. The response was overwhelming and began an annual tradition.

Kent Memorial Library Flowers / Courtyard
Each week a member provides a potted plant or floral arrangement for the circulation desk.

In 2009 the Main Street courtyard was planted with grasses to complement the contemporary architecture. We continue their maintenance. 
Arbor Day
Since 1965, our Club has presented each fourth-grade student in Suffield with a sapling tree. An average of 200 children receive trees each year. The funds for this project come from Mrs. Thomas Gallivan’s bequest to the Club's Memorial Fund.

These are the ongoing community activities of the Suffield Garden Club.

South Main Street Island
