East Hampton Garden Club's May Garden Party & Plant Sale

Friday, May 25th from 6:00pm-8:00pm Garden Party with Plant Sale and Silent Auction Saturday, May 26th from 9:00am-12:00pm Plant Sale

Admission to Friday’s cocktail party and silent auction is $50.00 per person and tickets can be purchased at the door. There is no admission fee on Saturday.

Come early for the best selection and take time to consult with Garden Club experts on the perfect plants and herbs for your garden. Plant Sales feature exquisite annuals and perennials especially selected for East Hampton’s Zone 7a climate. This year annuals designated by New York Botanical Garden professionals for the Garden Club’s new Moran Garden will be on display. Unique to the Garden Party are a sumptuous array of Hawaiian orchids, hanging baskets and potted plants. The Silent Auction includes a wealth of donated books, paintings, jewelry, fantastic travel opportunities, and Much More.

The Garden Club of East Hampton, founded in 1914, aims “to restore, improve and protect the quality of the environment through educational programs and civic improvements.” The Garden Party and Plant Sale is GCEH’s only fundraiser of the year, proceeds from which support Garden Club initiatives in beautification, education and conservation in East Hampton and on the state and national levels.

The GCEH has designed, installed and now maintains: The Mimi Meehan Native Plant Garden, Rachel’s Historic Dooryard Garden at Mulford Farm, the Janice S. Brightwell Heritage Apple Trees at Mulford Farm, the Brick Courtyard Garden at the East Hampton Library, the Mary Nimmo Moran Garden at the Thomas and Mary Nimmo Moran Studio, the Millstone Garden Park on Main Street, the Pollinator Garden at the East Hampton Town Hall, the East Hampton Post Office, the Railroad Station roses and plantings, and the Nature Trail. The GCEH maintains these gardens with the labor of its volunteer members, and in the case of the Nature Trail and Railroad Station, with assistance from the Ladies Village Improvement Society (LVIS).

In partnership with the Town of East Hampton, GCEH manages the Amagansett Orchid Conservation Project and assists with water quality testing of local waterways. Each year, GCEH Interns from East Hampton High School receive scholarships from the Garden Club for volunteer work at Big Reed Pond.
