The Hamilton Area Gardeners’ Club — of Hamilton, New York — meets one or two Tuesdays per month from March through November. Non-members are welcome to attend most events.

Outdoor Programs — Have included visits to area gardens and farms (apiary, hops, maple sugar, vineyard, and vegetable).

Indoor Programs — Usually held in the Community Room at the Hamilton Public Library, these meetings feature an array of speakers. Topics have included bonsai, invasive plants, making potpourri, putting your perennial gardens to bed for the winter, mushrooms, uses of herbs, and making decorative hypertufa garden planters.

Annual Plant Sale — Members contribute plants from their gardens for the June plant sale which raises money for community projects. Funds have supported scholarships for horticulture students at Morrisville State College, planting trees on the Village Green and at the Hamilton Central School playground, maintenance of paths at the Madison Lane Senior Apartments, Southern Madison Heritage Trust, Rogers Environmental Center, and the Chenango Canal Association. Please note that due to efforts to reduce the spread of highly invasive jumping worms, the annual plant sale will be on hiatus.  Service projects also include spring clean-up of the gazebo garden at Madison Lane and fall clean-up of the Hamilton Central School Children’s Garden.
