The Lombard Garden Club welcomes fellow gardeners who enjoy learning opportunities and the company of others. Members have a wealth of experience to share. Membership is open to any person at least 18 years of age who has an interest in gardening.
Lombard Garden Club meetings begin with social time followed by a lecture or demonstration on nature or gardening topics. Programs are followed by Club business and a delicious tea time
The Club meetings take place on the fourth Friday of the month, usually at the Lombard Community Building at Grace Street and St. Charles Road in Lombard. We gather at 12:30 p.m. with the program beginning at 1:00 p.m. Click here for current information on upcoming topics, locations , and information.
There is an evening horticulture study group that meets in members homes and visits locations of interest to gardeners. This group appeals to members who are unable to attend our large day-time meetings.
Upon joining the new member is asked to support the club’s constitution and by-laws, and the club’s mission. We are an all-volunteer organization with a commitment to support the beautification of our community. In view of that mission members serve on at least one committee in addition to the Refreshments Committee and participate in the annual lilac sale fundraiser in May.
