rumson garden club

Welcome to the Rumson Garden Club

Over the past one hundred plus years, RGC’s purpose has been to promote the knowledge and love of gardening and nature. It has maintained a vital community presence ranging from informative lectures open to the public, promoting the planting and conservation of native trees, plants and wildflowers, designing and maintaining mini-gardens in Rumson and donating scholarships to graduating high school students who demonstrate an interest in environmental studies. RGC both supports the purpose and activities of the GCA activities, and keeps its members informed on governmental issues that pertain to natural resources.

Recent Activities

Spring Cleaning at West Park

Every Spring, Summer and Fall, members of Rumson Garden Club's Civic Committee water, weed and deadhead the perennial plantings at West Park, a visual gateway to the Sea Bright Bridge. In addition, the Club seasonally maintains the plantings around the Rumson town sign, which is visible when entering the town from the Oceanic Bridge.

Seed to Sprout at Oceanic Library

Local mini-gardeners, aged five and six, enjoyed the Seed to Sprout program, run by members of the Rumson Garden Club at the Oceanic Library. The children learned how to plant and propagate seeds and cuttings. Once the plants are strong enough, the children will see the ‘fruits of their labors” as their plants will help fill and decorate the library’s 10 new window boxes.
