Hooksett Garden Club 
Mission Statement
The Hooksett Garden Club wishes
 to encourage interest in all phases
of gardening, floral design and 
horticulture; to aid in the protection
 and conservation of natural 
resources; and to assist in the civic beautification of the community.
                                                        
Meeting Information
Monthly meetings are held at the Hooksett Public Library,
31 Mount Saint Mary’s Way, Hooksett NH

Founded in 1997 by 12 charter members, the club has been an active part
of the Hooksett community ever since. We welcome new members
You don't have to live in the town of Hooksett to attend a meeting or be a member.
New to the area and want to meet new people? stop by - we’d be happy to meet 
you! Anyone interested in joining, or just curious as to what the club does, is
encouraged to come to a meeting and see what goes on. Some of our members
have extensive gardening knowledge and are Master Gardeners -
 others have learned by trial and error. 
                              Programs are free and open to the public.
HGC is a member of the New Hampshire Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc.,
