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.
Education Grant Awards
The Garden Club began giving Education grants to the town's Elementary schools in 2008. Winners are selected among the proposals received from teachers at the schools. The funds support special programs related to nature, biology, the environment and gardening with an aim to foster student interest in the natural world around them. Grants of up to $500 can be requested. Winners are chosen by the Educations Grants and Scholarships Committee with approval by the Executive Board.
