Seedlings Garden Club

About Us

Organized: September, 1949
Meetings: 3rd Monday at 6:00 p.m.

When friends meet … hearts warm.

Seedlings’ goal is to cultivate an appreciation of nature and beauty both at home and in the community, to work to conserve flora and fauna, and to raise funds for and/or participate in any activities that promote these endeavors. We also contribute to the Rockford community, and last year we donated $200 worth of clothing and food items to Rock House Kids.

Seedlings Garden Club strives to provide programs that are interesting, educational and fun. Our programs offer activities for all gardeners and nature lovers! There are many wonderful secrets hidden in the Rock River Valley. We have made garden art using different kinds of glassware glued together to make bird feeders, bird baths, and some interesting, colorful art to perk up our gardens. We also learned how to raise Monarch butterflies and release them into the garden. We have completed our planning for 2018 and have a wonderful list of programs to offer. Be sure to check out our schedule of activities below.
