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.

For 2023, we will have several Zoom and off-site meetings. Unless otherwise noted, other 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.
