Description & Services
Information Who We Are 
Chester Garden Club is a not-for-profit organization whose members are a group of Chester-area residents, who are interested in gardens and gardening-related activities, both horticulture and design. The Chester Garden Club is a member of the Nova Scotia Association of Garden Clubs. 
Our Activities and Responsibilities 
The aims of this club are to stimulate a knowledge and love of gardening; and to encourage and aid in the beautification of Chester through horticulture. In addition to presenting interesting speakers and workshops, the club is responsible for maintaining the plantings in two public green spaces in the Village of Chester. 
These are: the garden at the village Parade Square, which is owned by the municipality; and the Cove Garden, which is actually owned by the club itself. Both areas require planting, pruning and weeding, all of which is done by volunteers from the club as part of the members’ commitment to the club. 
Check out our website to see our upcoming events! 
The Club’s annual Gardeners Sale draws customers from far and near.
Eligibility Ages: 20 year(s) and up
