BOUND BROOK, NJ - The Bound Brook Garden Club (BBGC) is opening its memberships to women in the greater Bound Brook area who are interested in gardening and the camaraderie of people with a similar interest.
Members meet the first Friday of the month from October through June at members' homes. A program related to gardening is presented at each meeting. Current topics in horticulture arising from newspaper or magazine articles are discussed, as well as problems or interesting topics found in members' gardens.
Monthly, BBGC members donate plants or flower arrangements to the Bound Brook Library and place flowers in the dining room of the Somerset Home for Temporarily Displaced Children. Along with other Garden Club of New Jersey members, they arrange flowers for the patients at the Lyons campus of the Veterans Administration twice a year. Each December, in association with Wreaths Across America, they place evergreen wreaths on the graves of veterans at the Bound Brook Cemetery. They also provide garden therapy for the clients at the Adult Day Center of Somerset County. Most recently they have made financial contributions to the Twin Borough Scholarship Fund, supported the planting of a garden at the roundabout near the
Queen's Bridge, partnered with the Bound Brook-Middlesex Rotary Club and Bound Brook High School's Interact Club to plant summer flowers around town. They have also planted trees in town to mark both their 80th and 90th anniversaries.
