About

Founded in 1942, the Garden Club of Hunterdon Hills is open to people who are interested in gardening, sharing their knowledge of plants and horticulture, participating in garden outings, and helping to beautify Hunterdon County, New Jersey.  We also raise money for student scholarships and volunteer to clean up and preserve the charming landscapes of Hunterdon County.  Our meetings are the fourth Wednesday of each month beginning at 9:30 for coffee with a program scheduled afterwards.  Join us at the High Bridge Rescue Squad building at 95 West Main St. (Route 513), High Bridge, NJ 08829.
