 Why Join the Garden Club? 

A garden club is the vision, plan and manpower behind community beautification.  Whether it is welcoming neighborhood entrance gardens, partnership with the public works department, or holiday designs in public buildings, a garden club's presence is evident in our village. 

Gardening touches everyone in some way.  It can be beauty, color, solitude, food, memories, therapy, land value, exercise, attracting wildlife or just the thrill of making something grow.
