The Belfast Garden Club is responsible for maintaining over 12 public gardens in the City. In 2010 a grant from the Golden Rule Foundation was used to improve the garden around the Chapel at the Grove Cemetery. The Garden Club hosts the Open Garden Days all summer, and supports education through donations to the Belfast Free Library, Troy Howard Middle School Garden Project, and an annual Education Scholarship. Each meeting of the Belfast Garden Club is open to the public. The Club welcomes new members and volunteers year round.
