the Community Garden Club of Duxbury designed this island in the town of Duxbury, Massachusetts

The Community Garden Club of Duxbury exists, in large part, with a mission to beautify the town. Throughout the year we sponsor fundraising activities to raise the money needed to purchase plants and materials for the 12 garden sites we care for around Duxbury. This is an ambitious program and requires the participation of all of our members in order to water and maintain the sites over the summer months. In addition to the wonderful gift this is to the town of Duxbury, we find that it gives our more experienced members the opportunity to work with newer members to teach gardening “best practices” and that many new, lasting friendships result.
