Welcome to Our Website

Trenton Elementary School principal, Mr. Michael Zboray, is pictured with Ms. Snow Ross’ third grade class who participates in the nationwide “Farm to School Program.”  This USDA program encourages schools to teach children about where their food comes from and how it nourishes their bodies.

The Bar Harbor Garden Club presented the school a monetary gift towards their greenhouse project and gardening endeavors.  Each month the entire staff and student body taste a sample of something that they or local farmers have grown.  The class is pictured with a tray of “green” seedlings that they planted under the direction of Ms. Whitney Ciancetta, Ed Tech and Greenhouse coordinator.  The Club gave monetary gifts to our five local schools, as well as Frenchboro.

Floral Valentines for Nursing Home Residents

Join us for our annual Valentine-making project.  The Bar Harbor Garden Club’s February meeting will be held at St. John’s Church, 315 Main Street, Southwest Harbor on Thursday, February 14, 2019 at 1:00 PM. 

Making Valentine Tray Favors for MDI nursing home residents is a traditional activity for the Club.  They’re easy to make and it’s fun.  The Club will supply everything you’ll need.  And we’ll give you lots of ideas should you want them.

Our goal is to make 100 Valentines.  So, we could use some help!  All you need to supply is a pair of scissors.  We’ll bring a few extra scissors, in case you should forget them.

We hope that the Valentines will spread a little cheer to nursing home residents where it’s often much needed.  We look forward to seeing you, and your scissors at our February meeting!

Snow Cancellation Policy: When school is closed, there will NOT be a meeting.

This meeting is open to the public, but non-members are asked to reserve a seat at rsvp@barharborgardenclub.org or call 460-8496.

All Club Program meetings are open to the community, unless indicated otherwise.
