Garden Club

The Darien Garden Club is a friendly organization filled with people who enjoy gardening and want to learn more about their hobby. If you are interested in gardening, you are invited to visit us as a guest at any meeting (unless otherwise indicated). You will be greeted warmly and made welcome. Guests may attend two meetings prior to becoming a member. Membership is $30 annually.

Many club activities contribute to the community and the environment, and the club was honored to receive the coveted “GARDEN CLUB OF THE YEAR” award from The Garden Clubs of Illinois, Inc., for the fourth consecutive year. The Darien Garden Club is also a member of National Garden Clubs, Inc.

First Monday of each month (except holidays)
6:30 p.m. social time; 7:00 p.m. program, followed by business meeting
A Zoom link is available for those who prefer to attend remotely.
