The Little Gardens of Tarrytown was founded in 1924. In 1929, we became a member of the Federated Garden Clubs of New York State, which we remain a member of to this day.

In its formative years, the club participated in flower shows and civic improvement, winning awards for Miniature Rock Gardens and Floral Arrangements. In the 1940s, the club would decorate the Christmas Tree for the USO at the Neighborhood House. In the 50s, Little Gardens publicly advocated on village planning issues concerning parking and congestion.

Today, Little Gardens has gradually evolved its focus from flower shows to a focus on native, pollinator friendly plantings that contribute to a more sustainable environment. In 2008, Little Gardens planted its first native garden in Neperan Park, which was then expanded in 2014 for our 90th anniversary. We continue to enhance the park with pollinator friendly plantings through grants that we have secured from National Garden Clubs and Tarrytown Rotary Club.
