The Goshen Garden Club
was chartered on March 20, 1933
by ten of Goshen's leading citizens.
Mrs. Josephine Jenks organized the Club
and the first meeting was held in the
Congregational Church parlor. Meetings
for a number of years were held in the
homes of the respective members until the
membership grew too large, after which
they met at the Goshen Academy. We now
meet at the Church of Christ
Congregational Parish House and enjoy a
membership of more than 75 people from
Goshen and surrounding towns.
Our purpose is to encourage an interest in
and an appreciation of
our natural environment through
sharing knowledge of gardening,
ecology and wildlife habitat.
