Welcome to the Denville Beautification Committee

The Beautification Committee was established to stimulate the love of gardening, to provide education and resources about gardening, to aid in the protection of native plants and trees, and to work for the preservation of Denville Township's beauty. Muriel Hepner, a long-time member and Denville resident, believed that "people would behave and think in a more positive manner if the town was well kept" is at the core of the Beautification Committee’s ideology.

What we do

Our volunteers meet on Saturday mornings to do some planting, weeding, pruning or mulching in a particular garden. During the summer months, we also meet on Wednesday evenings to get a little more work done around town. It is also our aim to educate and inspire our volunteers while we work. Volunteering with DBC will give you a chance to connect socially with other volunteers, share your gardening skills and be involved with the activities of the township. A little of your time goes a long way.

New members are always welcome! Our committee meetings are held every 2nd Wednesday of every month at 7 pm in town hall.
