More about Wellesley Gardeners’ Guild

The Wellesley Gardeners’ Guild (WGG) was established in 1968 and is a non-profit organization dedicated to the beautification of Wellesley through several civic projects. WGG funds, plants and maintains the window boxes and containers at the Post Offices and the Main Library.

WGG also funds and plants seasonal displays for both the Town Square Clock Garden and the Fells Market sitting area. For the past several years, WGG donated decorated trees to the Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s Festival of Trees fundraisers and we donated artistic floral arrangements to the MFA’s “Art in Bloom” exhibits. This year, WGG is also raising money to replace our well-worn window boxes at the Wellesley Post Offices.
