Hudson Garden Club Meetings


Our meetings and field trips are held at various locations in and around Hudson or via Zoom. The meeting topic and location are announced on our Facebook page, our website and in our members’ newsletter. Check the Hudson Hub, too. 

Covid restrictions have caused us to be flexible in our meeting days and times.

Traditionally, our meetings begin with a social period at 6:30 p.m and the program begins at 7 p.m.

Guests and visitors are always welcome! Meetings are free and cover a wide variety of topics. Please stop by our membership table at the meeting and introduce yourself.
