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