Fairbanks Garden Club

This local club of fifty enthusiastic gardeners, founded in 1969,  has designed and nurtured the beautiful  flower gardens surrounding
the Fairbanks House for many years.  Also featured- and meticulously researched – is an authentic 17th century herb garden
of more than 30 plant varieties which were used by colonials for cooking, health supplements, and medicines.
A Garden Tour is offered twice a week until September 23rd, led by FGC member & FFA docent Lisa Brayton.

Each year their crews come out in force for Spring and Fall cleanups, new plantings, pruning, feeding, watering,
and of course weeding – to make sure these beautiful blooms are at their best.

The Club also sponsors an annual Spring Plant Sale
on the second Saturday in May which draws crowds
of gardeners, horticulturists, and anyone who loves green!
