Plum Beach Garden Club

is a group of

gardeners dedicated

to community

beautification, 

environmental 

conservation

and education.

The sale of custom engraved bricks in the walk of Old Library Park has been a major source of fund raising for PBGC since 1997.  We hope you will buy one or more to honor family, friends, pets, special events, etc. -- which will support our work in the community.  Thank you.

Hands-On Education

As part of its Youth Education mission, members of PBGC visited second graders at the Suzanne M. Henseler Quidnessett Elementary School to explain the iimportance of monarch butterflies as pollinators.

 

Together they planted a milkweed garden.  The underside of certain milkweed leaves is the only place monarchs lay their eggs. Which is why milkweed is essential to the existence of monarch butterflies.
