Town Gardens Maintained by the Club

The Chatham Garden Club, with support from the Town Park and Recreation Department, nurtures and maintains gardens, planters and window boxes across Chatham.  These points of beautification and conservation vary in size from window boxes at Town Hall to the extensive gardens bordering Oyster Pond.  Members volunteer their time and effort throughout the summer, with major clean-ups in the Spring and Fall.
