The Village Garden Club of Dennis is a nonprofit organization open to all fulltime residents living in Dennis, which includes the villages of Dennis, Dennis Port, West Dennis, South Dennis and East Dennis, MA. For the past 45 years, we have provided a common meeting ground for all interested in gardening, flower arranging, horticulture and civic beautification. We promote the conservation and preservation of our natural beauty and resources, and encourage a knowledge of horticulture, environmental science, or related fields by means of scholarships and community service. With projects like these, the Village Garden Club of Dennis is planting the seeds for our next generation of gardeners.
