The Mount Clemens Farm and Garden Club was founded in 1934 with the purpose of educating the public about gardening and helping to beautify the neighborhood. In 2006, the club left its affiliation with the Woman’s National Farm and Garden Association and became known as the Mount Clemens Garden Club. It offers a variety of programs including hands-on workshops, presentations by garden experts, and field trips to outstanding local gardens and nurseries. It sponsors ongoing civic projects that include maintaining the herb garden at the Crocker House Museum. The group holds its regular meetings on the second Monday of each month, April through January, at the Mount Clemens Public Library.
