Bernardsville Garden Club
About Us

OUR CREED
To beautify – to learn must be our role;
To conserve – to plant must be our goal;
To gather – to meet must be our rule;
To preserve – to help must be our jewel;
To listen – to want must be our need;
To succeed – to grow must be our creed.

Jane Stellas Keating
President, 1966 – 68


Statement of Objectives/ Mission Statement

This garden club shall encourage our community and especially our youth to preserve our natural environment as well as beautify our borough by working together. We will continue to educate ourselves and all in the community in horticulture, gardening and conservation by classes, lectures, on-site observations and exposure to varied and environmentally-sound gardening techniques.
