Falmouth is fortunate to have many parcels of open space owned and managed by the 300 Committee, the local land trust. The Garden Club Conservation Committee works with the 300 Committee to identify and label many of the trees, shrubs, and wild flowers on a number of these parcels.
We have won state and regional Garden Club Awards for this on-going project.
We made and donated identification signs for most of the specimen trees at Spohr Gardens, a six acre woodland garden on Oyster Pond owned and maintained by the Spohr Gardens Charitable Trust.
Garden Club members were involved in the Falmouth Friendly Lawns Campaign designed to raise awareness of the nitrogen loading in our salt water bays and ponds, and to teach people how to maintain an environmentally safe lawn.
