Worcester Garden Club
Working to Preserve the Environment
Since the sixties, members of the Worcester Garden Club have been aware of threats to our environment and the natural world. In the year 2000, a small group of women founded the Conservation Roundtable with the purpose of identifying ways to help alleviate these problems. Over the years the group has grown in size and in enthusiasm. The Roundtable meets five times during the year, inviting expert speakers on timely topics or taking field trips to explore solutions to environmental issues. The group also takes action when necessary.
The Roundtable actively monitors environmental issues on the local and national level. Using email, members are informed of pressing issues and asked to contact their legislators. Representatives of the club attend the National Affairs Legislation Conference in Washington, DC and often are present at the Worcester City Council Meetings.
