Membership & Club History


Tolland Garden Paths began in 2001 as a small group of Tolland residents who loved gardening and were looking for a way to share their knowledge with each other.  In 2003, the club became a qualified non-profit organization and a member of the Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut.  Tolland Garden Paths has continued to grow each year but maintains the same informal, friendly atmosphere that marked its beginning. Our members range in age and we come from different backgrounds but we all share a passion for gardening, learning, and enjoying social activities with each other. Our membership includes beginner gardeners, master gardeners, a landscape designer, a floral designer, several artists, and a horticulture major.

We are a relaxed club with limited rules and regulations. To fulfill the requirements of membership, an active member must attend a minimum of three meetings per year; pay the annual dues by the date set by the Board; and participate in one civic benefit project per year.

Meetings are held from February to October on a monthly basis, alternating between Saturday mornings and weekday evenings to accommodate member schedules.  We conduct our business meetings at a member's home but speaker presentations are often held at community rooms in Tolland.  Our favorite past time is to enjoy informal visits to member's gardens throughout the spring, summer, and fall months. Take a look at our calendar of events to see the fun events we have enjoyed in the past and what is coming up.

We welcome all residents of Tolland and the surrounding communities to join our garden club. Our annual membership dues for 2017 remain $20 per person. You can contact us by completing the membership/contact form if you would like more information or send email to: tollandgardenpaths@hotmail.com.
