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 encourage 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 participate in activities that promote these endeavors. We also contribute with financial donations to local organizations involved with horticulture for the benefit of the Rockford area community.

Seedlings Garden Club provides programs that are inspiring, educational and fun. Our programs offer activities for gardeners and nature lovers of all levels and experiences. There are many wonderful surprises hidden in the Rock River Valley. Our programs have included tours of prairies, home gardens, and public spaces. We have learned how to raise Monarch butterflies, made garden art, indoor and outdoor planters, and holiday table center pieces. The Seedlings Garden Club calendar is complete for 2023 and has a delightful list of programs. Please be sure to check out our schedule of activities.

In 2022 Seedlings donated $100 to each of these organizations:  Natural Land Institute, Klehm Arboretum, Midway Village and Severson Dells
