The Owls Head Garden Club was founded in 1980 by a group of local residents to encourage and cultivate an interest in gardening. The Club aids in the protection and conservation of natural resources and encourages the study of horticulture and flower arranging. The organization also promotes the beautification and preservation of community areas. Garden Club members currently maintain plantings at the Community Building, the Winnie Barbour Teardrop at the intersection of North Shore Drive and Route 73, the Village Memorial and Foster Square; planters at the Town Line and the Grange Traffic Island, as well as window boxes at the Library, the Post Office and the Grange. Fund raising activities included the Spring Plant and Bake Sale which supports the Club's college and camp scholarship programs. This last year the Club awarded a college scholarship to a young man from our community as well as four camp scholarships to youngsters from Owls Head to Tanglewood in Lincolnville. The Garden Club also donated to local charities, including the Area Interfaith Outreach Food Pantry, Knox County Meals on Wheels and Coastal Trans, and provided funds to the Owls Head Central School for planting around the Helen Wylie Memorial. Monthly meetings of the Club are held from September through June with summer activities usually at the Community Building. We welcome new members to become involved in our group.
