Our mission is to advance gardening among amateurs, to stimulate and increase knowledge of horticulture, to aid in the protection of native flora and fauna, and to encourage civic planting.
In conjunction with the Centennial of Acadia National Park, The Garden Club of Mount Desert’s biannual garden tour “Open Garden Day” will be held July 23, 2016 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Rain or Shine!
