Happy New Year. The year 2015 in the Garden Club is Cause For Celebration. Thirty-five years ago our humble club was started by a group of dedicated gardeners.  Here we are 35 years later still following the tradition of making Brigantine a more beautiful place to live by tending gardens throughout the island. That's 35 years. Happy anniversary.
