Darien 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.

Upcoming Programs

Sprouts – Darien Garden Club’s youth club – is hosting a houseplant-palooza on Wednesday, November 30 at 6:00 pm. Join us as we learn how to propagate, care for and enjoy houseplants. We’ll have all the supplies you need. Note: A responsible adult must accompany all children. More information on the meeting and to register: https://www.eventbrite.com

HO HO HO – Have you heard? Darien is having a Christmas Community Celebration this year at Old Lace School on December 4 from 1-4 pm to coincide with the annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony. There will be a small outdoor craft fair, hot chocolate, strolling youth carolers from the Darien Arts Council, goodie bags, and an opportunity for photos and to share your list with Santa. At 4pm the Eisenhower Jr High School Chorus will lead us as we sing “Christmas in Darien” prior to the official lighting of the Darien Community Christmas Tree.

The DGC Sprouts youth club will be participating in this community event. We will be selling small houseplants that we will be potting up at our next meeting (November 30). Please stop by to see us, learn about our youth and adult outreach, and perhaps add a fresh new plant to your houseplant collection.

We hope to see you there!
