Welcome to the Berkshire Chapter

We are a friendly group of enthusiastic gardeners interested in rock garden or alpine plants, woodland plants and dwarf shrubs and trees. We meet from March through November to hear slide lectures, see demonstrations and visit private gardens. Guests are very welcome.

Unless otherwise noted, meetings will be held in the Education Center at the Berkshire Botanical Garden, Stockbridge, MA starting at 10:30 am. Coffee and and tea are ready at 10:00 am for informal gathering and conversation.

For our November 12 meeting with speaker Anne Spiegel, the Berkshire Botanical Gardens is not requiring vaccinated attendees to wear masks indoors. Members should probably bring one in case this changes. Our meeting will be held in the classroom at the Berkshire Botanical Garden Education Center. Seats will be spaced further apart than usual. After the program, we will go to the Aegean Breeze Restaurant for our Annual Luncheon. For more information, go to the Meetings page.
