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.
