Civic Gardens

One of Sharon Garden Club's most important activities is initiating, designing, and maintaining civic flower gardens and landscapes to benefit our town. This is often accomplished by forging partnerships with town departments, other civic groups, or government committees. The club’s Civic Beautification Committee and volunteers keep a regular maintenance schedule for many of the gardens during the growing season. Individual club members design and maintain many Sharon civic gardens, assisted by the Sharon DPW.
