Due to tomorrow’s nor’easter, our program, Gardens of New England Artists is postponed until April 4, same time, same place.

Seaside Garden Club’s April Meeting is jointly sponsored by the Manchester Garden Club.

On Tuesday, April 4, Seaside Garden Club welcomes Jana Milbocker with a program on the Artists’ Gardens in New England.

Some of our most beloved painters, sculptors and authors were inspired by the gardens they created. Visit the private havens of Edith Wharton, Julian Alden Weir, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Daniel Chester French, Emily Dickinson, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Celia Thaxter and others in this virtual tour. 

Jana Milbocker is the principal of Enchanted Gardens (, a lecturer and author. She combines horticulture, design, and travel tips to educate, inspire and delight both new and seasoned gardeners. Jana loves to visit gardens and historic sites in the U.S. and abroad, and share her trips through her books, photos and blog.
