The Rye Driftwood Garden Club is excited to kick off our 2023-2024 season in September! During our monthly meetings, we welcome different speakers to present a topic of interest. We hire professional, well-known garden, floral designers, and horticultural experts to help us learn how to make our environment more beautiful and sustainable.
All of our meetings and programs are held at the Rye Congregational Church. Preceding the meetings we begin with a social half-hour at 9:30 am and the meeting starts at 10:00 am. The public is invited to attend these presentations. Non-club members are welcome for a suggested donation of $5, which goes towards RDGC's landscape grants and scholarships as well as future programs.
