Volunteering


As a Milford Garden Club member, there are so many ways to volunteer your time and talents to the club:   Here are some of our scheduled beautification meet-ups and our work days at the Community Garden.  Sign-ups and details will be provided at monthly meeting and if dates change members will be emailed.

BEAUTIFICATION- in addition to these dates, watering, weeding and deadheading happens throughout the season.

Saturday, April 24, 2021 –  Milford Enhancement Committee’s First Annual “Bill Kiger Community Clean Up Day” on Milford Community House Lawn     9 AM.   As part of the nation-wide Clean Up for Earth Day 2021, the MEC in partnership with the Milford Garden Club and the Borough Shade Tree Commission are looking to make Milford Shine! All volunteers will meet at the Community House at 9:00 am. We will provide plenty of garbage bags, grass seed, mulch and other required supplies.  The Milford Garden Club will host a family-friendly activity table, where attendees can plant some seeds in recycled containers to take home and place in a sunny spot and watch it grow!  Each team will be provided with a select location within the historic district or public parks with directions of the needs. Afterwards,  join us in Ann Street Park for sandwiches donated by local restaurants.
