NORTHBOROUGH – The Northborough Garden Club is inviting the community to create succulent terrariums on Oct. 3 at 6:30 p.m. at the Northborough Free Library.
Terrariums are a way to create a miniature garden indoors using low maintenance plants and a glass container. The workshop will be led by Moon River Botanicals and Northborough Garden Club member Shirley Tetreault.
Attendees are required to register for the workshop. Registration costs $25 and will cover the cost of plants and materials to create the terrarium. Attendees can register online at www.northboroughgardenclub.com.
The Northborough Garden Club was founded in 1925 and has a mission to encourage and foster the joy of gardening, horticulture and beautification of the home and community. The club is open to anyone who enjoys learning, participating in civic projects, conservation of resources and is crazy for plants.
The club maintains the Memorial Garden at the intersection of Route 20 and 135, the raised bed at Ellsworth McAfee Park and the planter on the grounds of the Northborough Historical Society.
They generally hold two fundraisers every year – the plant sale in June and a holiday fundraiser in the fall. Proceeds from their fundraisers are used to fund scholarships for graduating seniors, grants for the schools in town, decorating the Wayside Inn and May baskets for shut-ins.
The Northborough Garden Club meets the first Tuesday of each month with the exception of July and August. The timing of the meeting depends on its agenda, presentation or activity. There may be an occasional daytime meeting at a time to be announced.
