We host this biennial find-raising event with a walk through five private gardens in the St. Charles community.
We take pride in our wide variety of events, programs and community involvement. We enjoy our time together—learning, luncheoning, and working to beautify our community.

We plant the two bridges in St. Charles and the area surrounding the Municipal Building in May and September.
Every April we host a Spring Luncheon for our members and their guests. A garden themed program is provided. The table centerpieces are created by members to fit the theme of the luncheon.
Most club meetings feature an informational or just-plain-fun program about gardening, floral design, or conservation and natural habitats.
On occasion we decorate the St. Charles Public Library display window and the Municipal Building's street-front window.
Members-only event in October recognizes new and honorary members, votes in the new board, and awards an annual Landscape Commendation to a local business.
Our objective is to cultivate the spirit of gardening...
