The Nauset Garden Club is committed to encouraging future generations to preserve and improve our environment and make the world a better and more beautiful place.

The Club awards two scholarships to permanent residents of Cape Cod or the Islands. Students must be entering their junior or senior year of college, or a graduate program. Their major must be in landscape design, horticulture, environmental, marine or related sciences. Students are selected based on both merit and need.

 “Go-Green and Protect our Pollinators”

The Nauset Garden Club Founder’s Pledge

The Nauset’s planted and gardened, the keepers of this fragile land. They respected life all around them and were thankful for gifts in the sand. We hope to continue this heritage, take nothing for granted with this land.

"We pledge to preserve if we’re able, this air, water, beauty so grand.” 


The Nauset Garden Club has a “Go Green and Protect Our Pollinators” mini-grant program. Mini-Grants in the amount of up to $500.00 and up to $1000.00 are offered annually, by the Nauset Garden Club, to K-12 public school teachers in our regional system...Brewster, Chatham, Eastham, Harwich, Orleans, Provincetown, Truro, and Wellfleet. We have awarded thirty-two deserving programs over the last five years.


The purpose of this community outreach program is to give teachers and their students the opportunity to do projects that will inspire a life-long love and respect for our environment and our planet while also encouraging creativity, critical thinking and open-mindedness in the pursuit of sustainable solutions for the future.
