The Brattleboro Floral Arts and Garden Club is responsible for several community gardens in Brattleboro.
CREAMERY COVERED BRIDGE
The Club maintains the gardens at the Creamery Covered Bridge in West Brattleboro, just south of Route 9. The Creamery Covered Bridge is a historic lattice truss bridge built in 1879. It is Brattleboro’s last surviving 19th century bridge.
The Garden Club invites residents to remember and honor a loved one with a personalized, engraved cobblestone to be used to border the gardens and walkway at the Creamery Covered Bridge Park. They are made locally at Abbiati Monuments.
SCOTT FARM GARDEN AND THE VERMONT STONE TRUST
Scott Farm Orchard in Dummerson, Vermont, is also the home of The Stone Trust Center. While checking out the Farm Store there is also an amazing collection of stone walls and features in a beautiful setting overlooking the nearby hills. The stone wall pictured above was built with a grant through the Stone Trust and the gardens were designed and maintained by members of the Garden Club.
Green Mountain Chapel Gardens
The members of the Garden Club maintain the Green Mountain Chapel gardens in West Brattleboro, as a thank you to the congregation for providing us with meeting space for our monthly general meeting. Their gardens are adorned with daisies, lilies, lavender, astilbe, hosta, and a show-stopping yellow magnolia tree.
World War I Memorial
The gardens and flowers are maintained by the Garden Club. It has provided a serene space to sit and honor local heroes for many years..
