Projects

Skylands, The New Jersey State Botanical Garden
Our members help maintain the gardens and grounds and work at the annual Plant Sale.

Ridgewood Public Library Flower Arrangements
On a regular basis members place a fresh flower arrangement at the reception desk at the Public Library. Three times a year several members create a seasonal hallway display at the Ridgewood Public Library, 125 North Maple Avenue, Ridgewood, NJ.

Gardens at the Ridgewood Public Library
We are involved in maintaining our entry gardens, Maple Ave. gardens, and planters at the Library.  Our club adds perennials, which have been divided from our own gardens, and seasonal annuals.  The permanent planters are further enhanced. Members from our club provide year round maintenance for both of these areas at the Library, 125 North Maple Ave., Ridgewood, NJ.

Project Pride
This town beautification committee plants, waters, and weeds the 163 tree wells, 75 street planters and 116 live hanging baskets throughout downtown Ridgewood.  Our members include two past chairmen and several members of the committee, as well as volunteers who work on Project Pride Day and throughout the growing season.

Meals On Wheels
Our members participate in creating tray favors out of natural materials appropriate to the season for the shut-ins who receive these meals. 

Ridgewood Train Station
The Women Gardeners of Ridgewood annually embellish the station and its grounds for the holidays.

Ridgewood Library Programs
From time to time our members will present a garden program, open to the public free of charge, as part of the Library schedule of events. 

Community Education
On years alternating with our “Secret Gardens” tours, our members arrange a gardening event for the community, with speakers and presenters who represent a variety of niches in the gardening world. Proceeds of the day allow us to fund the many outreach projects we have undertaken over the years. 

Junior Program
The Junior Program, under the name “Green Kids” was started September 2007. It is a nature and gardening club for children Grades 3 through 6, which meets on the third Tuesday of the month to explore and discover nature, science, gardening, art, birding, weather, recycling, environment and our senses.

New Projects

Irene Habernickel Family Park
The Village of Ridgewood recently purchased this former horse farm and is currently planning a range of uses for the community. A committee will be formed to determine how the club can support the development of this site.

Floral Arrangements
The underwriting and designing of floral decorations for charity fundraising group events has become another way The Women Gardeners of Ridgewood has contributed to the community.
