In addition to the main club, we have several sub-groups. These offer activity-based experiences in smaller settings and accommodate a range of schedules, meeting monthly in the mornings or in the evenings.
Main Club Public Programs
Meetings take place the second Wednesdays of September-November and January-May. In October we meet in the evening and in April we have both day and evening meetings.
Our meetings are open to the public, so please come and bring a friend! For a full listing, see Main Club Public Programs page.
Founded in 1876, the Lexington Field & Garden Club offers many educational, social and community improvement opportunities. Our 300 members can learn about a wide range of gardening related topics through lectures, workshops, field trips, and projects focused on horticulture, landscaping, and floral design. Many of us also participate in maintaining civic spaces around town.
Upcoming Main Club Program(s):
Sunday March 4: Gardening with Native Plants: It Matters
The Lexington Field & Garden Club and Cary Memorial Library are co-sponsoring a talk by Claudia Thompson, founder of Grow Native Massachusetts.
Native plants are increasingly recognized as important to our gardens and landscapes, but why? Claudia will give us an overview of their essential role in ecosystem health— starting with the concept of co-evolution between plants and animals, and ending with a photographic tour of her 7,000 square foot garden in Cambridge, MA.
Using her garden as a case study, we will learn about the essential principles for designing gardens that are places of both beauty and biodiversity—with especially dramatic benefits for bird life, and for butterflies, pollinators and wildlife. Claudia will help us understand how best to select native plants for success, and how to approach garden design from an ecological perspective. By the end of the program, you will “get” why native plants are so important and understand what you can do in your own garden to make the world a better place!
Cary Memorial Library, downstairs meeting room, 2 PM.
