The Auxiliary of the FDCMG, Inc.

In May of 1970, twenty-seven volunteers organized a fundraising event for the garden, and a month later they formed the The Fanny Dwight Clark Memorial Garden, Inc. Auxiliary.

Since that time, the Auxiliary has increased its membership and continues to be the primary source of fundraising events including the annual Spring Plant Sale and the famous Bick Tea

Volunteers from the Auxiliary also staff The Gift Shop
