Marlborough – Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, members of the Colonial Garden Club of Marlborough have continued to maintain the city’s gardens as they have for many years.  Donning masks and maintaining social distancing while they work, members have been maintaining the city entrance garden, located on Route 85 leaving Hudson and entering Marlborough. This beautiful new garden and sign provide a stunning welcome to Marlborough for visitors and residents alike. Although you can’t stop and smell the flowers as you drive by, the club hopes the beauty of this site provides a little lift and signals hope for the future for every driver who passes by. Look for other signs of their work throughout the city and at the Ghiloni Park Pocket Garden. 

A 60-year-old charitable organization, the club provides free education and beautification services to the public and the city’s gardens. Ongoing education classes are open to the public and planned by members on topics including landscaping, flowers and arranging, landscape design, care for shrubs and trees and the creative art of creating live wreaths, swags, centerpieces, oversized marquis arrangements for indoors and outdoors. Member benefits include discounts at area garden and landscaping centers; free access to Tower Hill Botanic Garden; and helping the club to donate scholarships to city youth.
