All meetings are open to the community, unless indicated otherwise.
The Club, founded in 1934, has as its mission to promote the love of horticulture, to protect and preserve our natural resources, to provide educational opportunities, to contribute responsibly to civic and environmental needs, and to enjoy the fellowship of our members.
One needs not be a gardener to belong. Membership in the Bar Harbor Garden Club is open to all interested people. Club programs are scheduled September through the month of May.
