MARLBOROUGH – Think your garden, or your neighbor’s, is an award winner?

Dazzled by a garden you admire on your daily walk?

Find yourself slowing down to admire a certain garden each time you drive by it? 

The Marlborough Garden Club wants to hear from you.

The Marlborough Garden Club is actively seeking nominations for its annual beautification awards, which recognize city residents whose gardening efforts are over and above the norm.

From the whimsical to formal, very grand to small urban gardens, these landscapes delight and inspire others throughout the year. The annual beautification awards are the club’s way of thanking these gardeners for their hard work in beautifying their neighborhoods and the greater community.

To nominate a garden for an award, simply send an email to [email protected] and include the street address of the garden you are nominating, along with a sentence or two about why you have nominated it. If you have the gardener’s name and contact information, please include it as well. 

Please note that gardens must be visible to the public from a street or sidewalk.

Nominations are due by Wednesday, June 7. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, June 14.

The Marlborough Garden Club is a 501(c)3 charitable organization focused on beautification, education and conservation to improve the city. Members design and maintain multiple gardens across the city.

The club also provides scholarships to graduating high school seniors who plan to further their education in life sciences, and offers programs on horticultural and environmental topics that are open to the public. 

The Marlborough Garden Club is a member of the Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts Inc.
