The object of this club is to stimulate interest in horticulture and to expand our knowledge of gardening for the benefit of our community.  We gather for various activities throughout the year.  We gather for educational, community and social activities throughout the year.  Our official educational program runs from September to June and we meet the second Wednesday of the month from 7.00 p.m. to 9.00 p.m. at St. Andrews Church, 3 Maple Street, Framingham. MA for our general program.  See Programs and Activities for details or contact us at pinefieldgardenclub@gmail.com.



Projects include our civic development project in front of the Village Hall at the Framingham History Center, the maintenance of  the Garden of Hope located behind the Metrowest Cancer Center and Simpson Park, off Central, Fenwick and Haynes Streets and more.

The Garden of Hope, one of our community projects, is located behind the Cancer Center building which is next to the Metrowest Medical Center in Framingham.    This hidden gem, a beautiful woodland garden and peaceful retreat for reflection was established nearly thirty years ago by Betty and Dana Jost in memory of their son whom they lost to cancer.  Club members have volunteered to help maintain the garden, working several times during the year.  Make it a point to stop by the garden and enjoy the solitude and beauty.

About us . . .

Pinefield Garden Club members come from Framingham, Natick, Ashland, Marlborough, Sudbury and surrounding towns in Massachusetts. We come from different walks of life and gardening brings us together.  We are an active club and encourage our members to get involved in our monthly programs.  We hold educational meetings nine months of the year in Framingham (check out our 2018-19 programs), offer workshops, take care of three community gardens, have an Annual Plant Sale, visit with and entertain residents in a local nursing home, donate to charities, assist in the decorating of Longfellow's Wayside Inn for the holidays and meet socially for fun activities.   Guests are always welcome at our monthly programs at St Andrews Episcopal Church in Framingham or call us for more information.
