Lexington Field & Garden Club
Education, Friendship, Service


Our next meeting will take place on Wednesday March 8, 2017 

at The Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library (National Heritage Museum),

33 Marrett Road, Lexington.


Programs are preceded by Coffee at 9:30 am and Business Meeting at 10 am.


Mar. 8: Composting in Lexington. The Lexington Composting Facility at Hartwell Avenue diverts tens of thousands of cubic yards of yard waste from the waste stream and produces quality-finished compost products each year. This saves the town thousands of dollars in avoided costs and generates revenues from permit

fees and compost sales each year.  Robert Beaudoin, Superintendent of Environmental Services, will give a historical overview of the resource

management and development activities, some planned and some to be

constructed at Hartwell Avenue.


Our meetings are free and open to the public so please come, bring a friend

along too!


We look forward to seeing you then!

Home for the Holidays


On December 11th the Garden Club hosted its inaugural fundraiser, Home for

the Holidays, and by all accounts it was a terrific success!


Over 350 guests, including 240 non-members from Lexington and beyond,

peeked behind the doors of six lovely homes. At our tour headquarters, dozens

of beautiful greens arrangements sold out quickly, and most of the unique, handcrafted Holiday Boutique decorations were snapped up as well. Visitors at

the homes marveled at the diverse mix of decorating styles, the personal touches, and the amount of work required to create some of the displays! The feeling was

of conviviality and merriment, and the Garden Club made many new friends.


We would like to thank our homeowners for so generously opening their doors.

Our team of volunteers - House Captains, hostesses, headquarters helpers, and bakers were instrumental in making the day run without a hitch and keeping everyone happy.




Thank you also to the following businesses for generously sponsoring our inaugural house tour:


Barrett Sotheby's International Realty, Robin Gannon Interiors, The Inn at

Hastings Park, Wagon Wheel Nursery & Farmstand, William Raveis, and

Wilson Farms
