The Olde Ripton Garden Club is looking for new members who enjoy horticulture and working in nature. Anyone interested in gardening is encouraged to join and volunteers who want to assist in refurbishing and updating gardens at community locations throughout Shelton are welcome.
The garden club seeks to provide knowledge in the horticulture of plants, artistic design, landscaping, conservation and garden planning. Their purpose is to promote protection of the environment and to assist in beautifying streets, highways and grounds around public buildings. There is an annual scholarship given to a Shelton High School student and a garden therapy program at Crosby Commons Assisted Living Center among other fun and valuable programs.
