Plantaholics Garden Club

About Us

Organized:  June, 2006
Meetings:  1st Tuesday @ 5:30 or 6:00 p.m.

We are an eclectic group! We have great fun at our meetings which take us in many directions and run the gamut of experiences. There are so many unique and wonderful places to visit and explore in the Rock River Valley.

We meet in the evenings which are packed full of fun and interesting destinations. Many times these places are right in the Rockford area. We are amazed each year at the number of destinations that are new to us.

We meet in the evenings which are packed full of fun and interesting destinations. Many times these places are right in the Rockford area. We are amazed each year at the number of destinations that are new to us. This year we met at Petals and Pickins’ to arrange flowers, visited the beautiful wildflower garden at Klehm Arboretum in May to enjoy the native plants welcoming spring, toured Midway Village Heritage Gardens, took a sculpture tour at Nicholas Conservatory, toured the Peace Plaza and ventured to Fabyan Japanese Gardens in Batavia, where we donated $50 to the preservation of Fabyan Gardens.

We always find time to meet at members’ gardens where we have potlucks and plant exchanges. We have a wonderful time together and always come home with some new piece of information. It’s all about sharing!

 

Go often to the house of a friend,
for weeds soon choke up the unused path.
Shared joy is a double joy;
shared sorrow is half a sorrow.
– Swedish Proverbs
