Star Island Retreat Sept. 11-13, 2023

Annual Portsmouth Garden Club Star Island Retreat

Here is the information you’ll need to plan your attendance to the Portsmouth Garden Club’s Annual Star Island Conference/Retreat!

WHO: All members of our club (and neighboring seacoast garden clubs) are welcome, as well as friends and family of PGC attendees

WHAT: This is a low-key conference, where all activities are optional.

That said, our event includes:

  • wine and cheese gatherings on the porch before dinner

  • a candlelit chapel service by and for our group

  • an art workshop

  • kayaking and Smuttynose excursion (weather permitting)

  • member-led craft projects

  • garden clean-up around the historic cottages

  • bird walks, nature walks, rock walks …

  • inspiring sunsets

  • awesome sunrises

  • whatever else the land and sea have for you after a summer of hard gardening!

WHERE: You can choose either a shared or single room in the hotel or motel. Accommodations

are definitely rustic, but clean and comfortable. Wireless technology is available, but no

TV. For more information, check out the Star Island website:
