Longfellow Garden Club

Longfellow Garden Club was founded in 1924 to maintain the Longfellow Garden on the campus of the Maine Historical Society in Portland, Maine.  In the 1970's it began collaborating with the City of Portland to develop the Longfellow Arboretum in Payson Park. The mission of maintaining both gardens continues today.  During the summer months the club works regularly in the gardens.  From September through May It meets on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, with the business meeting starting at 10 am and the program starting at 11 am.  The club is a member of the Garden Club Federation of Maine, the New England Region, and the National Garden Clubs and works to foster their objectives..  New members are always welcome!  For information on joining the club, please contact the Membership Chair at longfellowgarden@gmail.org.
