The Garden Club
"Flowers always make people feel better, happier & more helpful; they are sunshine, food, and medicine for the soul."
The GCH is partnering with the National Wildlife Federation to certify backyard wildlife habitats and open spaces throughout the Harwiches. We are happy to report that we achieved town certification in November 2019. That meant that at least 175 homes and open spaces met five criteria: to provide food sources for wildlife, water sources, places for cover to raise young, and use sustainable gardening practices. We were the first town on Cape Cod to receive the designation. Please join us in our efforts by going to nwf.org and clicking on “Get Involved” and then clicking “Certify.” Our club will celebrate its 90th birthday in 2022. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if 90 more properties became certified as NWF backyard wildlife habitats? You probably have already met most of the requirements for certification.
