The Garden Club of Stone Harbor welcomes you to this “special, idyllic” place.  For 40 years the Garden Club has strived to add to the beauty of this island with annual projects such as planting flowers on the medians of Second Avenue, planting and tending to the “Garden of Remembrance” at 122nd and Second Avenue, and providing the many downtown hanging baskets and floral urns, with assistance from the Borough and SHPOA.

In order to fund these projects, we sponsor several events such as the Fashion Show in October, the Plant and Bake sale on Mother’s Day weekend, the Community Yard Sale in May, and the House and Garden Tour on the first weekend in June.
