Brewster Garden Club’s Beautification Award has been given annually for the last 20 years to a Brewster business or individual whose garden is in a location which can be viewed and appreciated by the general public. The purpose of the award is to encourage residents and businesses to keep Brewster’s highways and byways flowering and beautiful for all to enjoy. Winners are chosen by the Horticultural Education Committee.
