Your Community Garden Club

The Northbrook Garden Club is a community of gardeners that provides opportunities to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening through programs, events and on going projects. 


In addition to our PROGRAMS & EVENTS during the year which are open to members and the public, our projects include:


  • on-going support for Milkweed for Monarchs,
  • maintenance  of our Blue Star Memorial and a  garden at the Northbrook Historical Society,
  • stewardship of a local prairie and historic peony farm, and
  • therapy projects at a local skilled care facility.


Our annual plant sale funds a scholarship to a Glenbrook North High School senior, as well as other state scholarships, and numerous state and national projects.

2019 - 2020 Theme: "FINDING OUR ROOTS" & CELEBRATING OUR 70TH ANNIVERSARY

The Northbrook Garden Club was founded September 20, 1949. Beginning in 2019, the club launched its 70th Anniversary Celebration with programs focusing on historic Northbrook with presentations from local experts, businesses, & historians. 


In partnership with the Northbrook Public Library, we had several exciting events for our 70th Anniversary Celebration beginning Saturday, September 7th through Friday, September 27th. 


The keynote speaker was Craig Bergmann of Craig Bergmann Landscape Design, Inc. who presented to a full auditorium. Additional events included a DIY Terrarium, an indoor micro version  of Forest Bathing  and lobby display cases featuring items from our 70 years of history. 


The Collaboratory at the Northbrook Public Library has developed templates for garden markers & signs using the 3D printer & laser cutter. Please contact the library for hours and other information about using the Collaboratory at https://www.northbrook.info/collaboratory#visitcollab or  847.272.6224.
