Each member is encouraged to take an active part in at least one of the club's objectives: horticulture; artistic design; conservation or civic projects.  Members are expected to participate in club programs, fund raisers, and a Flower Show when scheduled. Our club is a diverse and interesting group of men and women.

Our membership includes Master Gardeners, home gardeners, and others who want to learn more about horticulture, design, conservation and environmental issues.

The club participates in many local civic projects including: beautifying local public areas; maintaining an herb garden at Audubon at the Bent of the River; growing vegetables to donate to the Southbury Food Bank; awarding local merchants for outstanding landscaping efforts, and presenting a scholarship to a Southbury resident pursuing a degree in horticulture or a related field. The club works with other civic groups including: Safe Haven; Town of Southbury; Historical Building Commission; Audubon Society; the Southbury Public Library, and many others.

Members are expected to support our Annual Spring Plant Sale; once a year assist with hospitality, and provide a flower arrangement for display in the library when scheduled.
