& fellow garden lovers!
Pottawatomie Garden Club of St. Charles is a spirited, award-winning group active in the community since 1928. Public and private property in St. Charles has blossomed over the decades with the club’s attention and generosity.
The objective of the Pottawatomie Garden Club is to cultivate the spirit of gardening in its broadest sense, to beautify home grounds, and to encourage community beautification through gardening and education.
Each Spring and Fall the Garden Cub plants flowers on the Main and Illinois Street Bridges and around downtown St. Charles. The Club often recognizes commercial property owners with Landscape Commendation Awards and maintains a Memorial Tree Program for deceased members. Reaching out, we assist other local groups with their garden projects.
Various fundraising projects has enabled the club to give many thousands of dollars to students majoring in the field of horticulture and provide significant support to Garfield Farm Museum and other state and local projects.
The biennial Pottawatomie Garden Club Garden Walk, held in even years, educates and inspires visitors as they tour a selection of glorious gardens.
Between February and October educational programs at regular meetings address a variety of garden topics. They are open to the public and potential members. Click “Calendar” for details. Membership is available to any person living in the area who will actively participate in group activities and goals.
