The mission of the Little Compton Garden Club is to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening, and to work with its members to protect, preserve and enhance the character of its unique seaside community.
The Little Compton Garden Club, located in Little Compton, Rhode Island was founded in 1924 by a group of women who were passionate about gardening, horticulture and conservation. The LCGC became a member of the Garden Club of America in 1952 and shares its goals to protect and preserve our environment, as well as create awareness of existing environmental challenges that need to be addressed.
Little Compton Garden Club members are actively involved in the beautification of the Little Compton community. Ongoing civic projects include caring for the window boxes of Town Hall, the Community Center and Brownell Library, as well as maintaining the herb gardens at the Little Compton Historical Society. Civic outreach includes helping local school children create wreaths from our natural resources which are used to decorate public buildings and churches and taking neighboring urban school children to visit, learn and participate in activities in our natural preserves.
