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. Of special interest our tour of an authentic 17th century herb garden
of more than 30 plant varieties which were used by colonials for cooking, health supplements, and medicines. These were meticulously researched and are described on plant markers with both common and Latin names and their uses. Contact us and we will email you this list of kitchen garden plants.
Our colonial kitchen garden tours are offered by appointment during our open season, led by FGC member & FFA docent Lisa Brayton.
Each year the Fairbanks Garden Club 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 and herbs 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!
