Edith Duff Gwinn Garden, Barnegat Light, N.J.

Beach Haven Public Library Garden, 
Beach Haven, N.J.

The club maintains two gardens that are open to the public all year: The Edith Duff Gwinn Garden, founded by its namesake in 1968, and The Beach Haven Library Garden started in 1996. Each Monday from May to November, you'll find a dedicated group of workers there planning, planting and, yes, even doing the occasional photo op! 
Reading is fundamental--and so is gardening--at the Beach Haven Library, 3rd and Beach Avenues! 
What better way to honor that special someone than by placing a brick with his or her name on it in the walkway at EDG. To print out a brick-engraving form, click here.
