Making A Difference

The Long Hill Garden Club is comprised of numerous members with unique skills and experiences who seek to work together to educate, conserve and share to improve our homes and community.  Here are a few of the ways club members share their gifts with others. 

Garden Therapy

The Garden Therapy ELITE program works to educate students with intellectual or learning disabilities about gardening.  The Garden Therapy program at Stern Village is geared to senior citizens and offers various floral and horticulture related activities.

Conservation and Environment

The Conservation Committee seeks out projects to promote organic, native planting practices in our community as well as encouraging recycling and ecologically based programs.  Club members recently planted two certified Monarch Waystations in Trumbull. 

Offering "A small bouquet to brighten your day," this altruistic project has one goal - to spread happiness and cheer!  Club members create small floral bouquets and give them to unsuspecting individuals in Trumbull and surrounding communities. 

Random Acts of Kindness
