Bar Harbor Garden Club to partner with local organizations
Children’s Summer Garden Club Program
The BHGC is proud to partner with the Bass Harbor Memorial Library (BHML) to offer a summer Garden Club Program for children. Our hope is to foster a life-long interest in gardening and horticulture among our Youth. This program will offer hands-on learning workshops at the BHML, as well as gardening mentors to work with the children at a Tremont location. Click here to learn more.
