Western Springs Garden Club was founded in 1926. We are a charter member of the National Garden Clubs, Inc. Central Region and the Garden Clubs of Illinois, Inc. District II. We have nearly 70 active members and seven sustaining members. Several members have participated for over twenty-five years! All are welcome to join and we currently have thirty members that are nonresidents.
The purpose of the Western Springs Garden Club is to encourage and foster a greater appreciation of trees, shrubs and flowers among our members and neighbors, and to stimulate an interest in protection of forests, wild flowers, and birds.
We support civic projects in our community such as planting flowers in the Blue Star Memorial Garden in the spring, maintain the perennial beds in Spring Rock Park, and provide trees to area schools on Arbor Day. We award scholarships to college students in our community who are pursuing degrees in conservation, horticulture, landscape design, environmental science or other botany related fields. We bring monthly flower displays to the Western Springs Public Library. The club plans outings of interest to its members and holds a plant exchange. Don't miss our annual PLANT SALE, Saturday May 14, 2022.
This year our meetings will be held at Grace Lutheran Church, 4101 Wolf Road. Masks currently are required. Check back for status updates.
