The Nantucket Garden Club
The Nantucket Garden Club is a member of the Garden Club of America. This summer club on the resort island of Nantucket off the Coast of Cape Cod has members from throughout the U.S. who spend much of their vacation time in service to the Nantucket community and take responsibility for long-term civic projects.
The Nantucket Garden Club sponsors three annual events that are a major part of the community calendar on the island.
Late April the island comes alive with spring. Yellow daffodils bloom along roadsides and in gardens everywhere. Daffodil Weekendhas been held for more than 30 years and now includes an antique car parade, festive store windows, elaborate tailgate picnics in 'Sconset, and the Daffodil Flower Show. The flower show is co-sponsored by the Nantucket Garden Club and the American Daffodil Society and features a wide variety of daffodils and wonderful spring arrangements. This island-wide welcome to spring now brings thousands of visitors for the Daffodil Weekend in April. The Nantucket Garden Club continues the daffodil bulb planting project along roadways and bike paths, and involves the local school children in growing bulbs for the flower show.
