Our objective is to cultivate the spirit of gardening in the broadest sense, to beautify home grounds and to encourage community beautification through gardening and education.
Since 1928, the members of the Pottawatomie Garden Club have made St. Charles a more beautiful community. We plant flowers on the Main Street and Illinois bridges, and around the Municipal building each spring and fall; we honor past members with a Memorial Tree Program; and we present an annual Landscape Commendation Award to businesses in the Township.
The Pottawatomie Garden Club also awards thousands of dollars to top horticulture students and provides significant financial support to gardening and environmental projects in the community. Annual fundraisers provide the funds to support these projects and the scholarship program.
At monthly meetings from February through October, we enjoy guest speakers, luncheons, or jaunts to points of interest. These are all great opportunities to socialize, share and learn with fellow garden club members. We welcome every level of gardener and every contribution of time and energy. History of the Club >
