Camden Garden Club Winter 2022 Horticulture Series: A Virtual Walk Through Camden

Tuesday, February 8, 2022 @ 9:30 am 10:30 am

Join us this winter for a fascinating five-part series of free horticulture talks, presented by the Camden Garden Club and the Camden Public Library. Programs will be held via Zoom on Tuesdays at 9:30 am, January 25 – February 22, 2022. The FULL list of programs can be found by scrolling down to the bottom of this page.

The program on February 8, “A Virtual Walk Through Camden,” is presented by Dave Jackson and Amy Rollins. Jackson and Rollins teamed up in the summer of 2012 to present Historic Walking Tours of Camden, originally created as a joint outreach program of the Camden Area Business Group and the Camden Public Library. The tours have been offered free of charge on Friday afternoons throughout the summer months for the past ten years.



Dave Jackson is the Director of Parks for the Camden Public Library, including Harbor Park, the grounds of the library, and the Amphitheatre. Dave was instrumental in nominating the Amphitheatre and Camden Public Library as a National Historic Landmark, a process which took six years to complete. The designation was awarded by the National Park Service in March 2013. During his tenure at the library, Dave has successfully applied for several grants through the National Trust for Historic Preservation which allow the library to maintain its treasured landscape.

Amy Rollins is the Member Services Director for the Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce. A Camden native and former Trustee of the Camden Public Library, Amy has a passion for researching and sharing Camden’s history. She has a particular interest in interviewing key figures who remember the Camden of her childhood and before her time. 

About the Camden Garden Club: More than a century after its founding in 1915, the objective of the women and men of the Camden Garden Club is to cultivate the art of gardening to its fullest sense; to develop and preserve beauty in and around Camden; and to promote civic improvements, education, and conservation of natural resources. The Camden Garden Club is the oldest garden club in Maine, and its annual Garden Tour has become so popular that many tourists plan their vacations around it. The Camden Garden Club is a member of the Garden Club Federation of Maine and National Garden Clubs, Inc.
