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 nine programs 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 
  • 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.
