HISTORY:
    The Natick Garden Club was born in the summer of 1998.
    Three friends, Marilyn Lustig, Anne Freeman, and Lisa Weiler, with a love of gardening, decided an evening garden club was desperately needed in town. They reserved the lower level community room in the Morse Library, printed and distributed flyers, and put announcements in the local papers about the meeting on Thursday, September 17, 1998. The flyer, titled Something New is Blooming in Natick, welcomed all levels of gardeners, beginner or experienced, to attend the founding meeting.
    Twenty three enthusiastic gardeners attended and discussed what the group would like to have for its focus and programs. When the membership grew too large for the library meeting room, the club found a home in the First Baptist Church on Common Street. In 2012, we moved to the brand new Natick Community-Senior Center at 117 East Central Street. In 2015 we moved back to the beautiful Lebowitz Meeting Room at the Morse Library.
    What began as a seedling of an idea today has grown into a club of eighty plus members!
