We invite you to come down the garden steps and join us any Monday morning from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon during the garden season from mid-April through mid-November.

Volunteers are always welcome!

The Garden at Tracy Library is a great place to meet new people, to learn more about gardening, and to offer your time and talents to the community.

Some of our volunteers are highly experienced and enjoy sharing their knowledge. Others are beginners who are having fun learning new gardening tips each week as we work together. No special skills required. Everyone is welcome!

While it is great when volunteers can come consistently most Mondays, we understand people’s time commitments and are happy to have your help even if just for a few times during the season for an hour or two. You may bring your own garden tools; however, we also have some implements in our shed that you may borrow.

Our garden volunteers also participate in the town’s Hospital Days parade on the first Saturday of August. Please come and join us or cheer us on from the street. It will add to the fun.

Our Head Gardener, Sally Dean, is in the Garden each Monday from 9:00-12:00, working alongside the volunteers and answering questions.

 She also provides detailed information about highlighted flowers each week in our volunteer bulletins.

Volunteers can sign up to receive email notifications about our plans for each Monday’s work in the garden. If you are interested, you may share your contact information when you come on a Monday morning.

Annual Garden Party

Every June the Board hosts a Garden Party inviting the community to enjoy a program featuring a speaker of note and home-made refreshments in the garden.

This year’s garden party will be held on Sunday, June 23, 2024 at 2:00 pm. The speaker will be Dimitri Gerakaris, who designed the inspiring fountain which sits in our garden pool. Mr. Gerakaris is an architectural and sculptural metal smith whose forge is in Canaan, NH. His topic will be “The Artistic Garden.”

This event is free to the public.
