The Garden Club of Stone Harbor, welcomes you to the island we take pride in helping to keep beautiful. Members plant flowers on the downtown medians on Second Avenue. Also, each year, the downtown baskets and urns are provided by the club with assistance from SHPOA, and maintained by Stone Harbor Publics Works Department. In addition, the club maintains the Garden of Remembrance, ocean side, at 122nd Street and Second Avenue, which originated and was named in honor of deceased club members. The window boxes at the bridge tender’s building are also planted by our members. Every Arbor Day a tree and a donation is presented to the Stone Harbor Elementary School. All of this work is accomplished with the donation of time, labor and love of the members of the Garden Club.
In order to fund these projects, we sponsor several events each year: Plant and Bake Sale on Mother’s Day Weekend, our Community Yard Sale in May, our House Tour held on the first Saturday of June, and our Fashion Show in October.
Although our club and community has faced many challenges in 2020, we continue to help our community overcome these challenges. This year we have had to cancel two major fundraising events and will be replacing them with a unique non-event, the second Garden Club of Stone Harbor PHANTOM BALL. May it be a success, so we can continue to help keep our island beautiful through the enthusiastic efforts of our membership and neighbors.
We welcome you to become a member and attend one of our monthly meetings, which are held the second Monday of each month, (beginning in November this year) from September through June at 9:30 a.m. at the Women’s Civic Club Building, 96th and the beach.
At our monthly meetings members enjoy hands on programs and many garden knowledgeable Speakers with advice and tips.
