The Natick Garden Club takes great pride in its involvement in two civic projects: decorating the Natick Downtown Containers and the Morse Institute Library.

Downtown Containers
The club, in partnership with the Natick Center Associates, is responsible for planting a total of 47 containers, including the planters on the bridge over the train tracks, for both the summer and the winter seasons. The bridge planting is coordinated with our friends in the Fifteen Gardeners, a daytime Natick garden club. In the summer, the containers are filled with a variety of annual flowers and vines. American flags are added for Fourth of July. Dead heading by members continues throughout the summer. In September, mums, asters and kale are added to spruce up the containers for the fall. In November, winter greenery donated by members is arranged. Colorful bows are added for the holidays.
