We are the New England Chapter of the Gesneriad Society, a non-profit, 501c3 Massachusetts based organization for hobbyists, horticulturists and all who love, or want to learn about, or share, information about Gesneriad plants. We support research being done around the world to identify and preserve these species.
Come join us! We meet on the first Sunday of the Month from October thru May. December's and June's meetings are held at members' homes for our Potluck Luncheon Holiday Party and our Potluck Picnic. Our Annual Plant Show and Sale takes place usually the third weekend in September at Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, MA.
UPCOMING MEETINGS for April and May 2020 have been CANCELLED.
We will post regarding our June Picnic on here when we have made a decision.
Members, please check your email for an email of the Slate of Officers to be voted on for next year. Given the cancellation, we will hold the election via email. We realize not everyone will be able to participate this way, but believe it is the best option under the circumstances. To vote, please send email to Rick Fadden our current president, his address is listed on the email Dee Stewart sent out to the NETGS Membership. Please vote promptly so that we can announce the results in a timely fashion.
Please stay safe and healthy!
At February's NETGS Meeting we celebrated our senior member, Mary Bozoian's 100th Birthday! She is a wonderful teacher and inspiration to us all! Happy 100 Mary!
2019 Gesneriad Show and Sale
We had a great Show and Sale! We had quite a few people come to the combined shows, and we had lots of plants on display and lots of plants were sold! Thanks to every one of our volunteers for everything you do to make this a success!!
