Wildflower Garden Club

About Us

Organized:  June, 1981
Meetings:  4th Thursday (morning / times vary)

Enjoy nature’s bounty and beauty
through work and creativity.

The Wildflower Garden Club enjoys active programs and creative field trips and socializing plus lunch!!!!

A key focus is to always strive to go see new places as well as a variety of places.

Wildflower members visit various greenhouses, nurseries, and gardens to learn about new plants and flowers to enjoy in our home gardens. January we meet for lunch and elect new officers for our club. This year we will be visiting local greenhouses and gardens, and traveling to Nick’s Grandview Folk Art Environment in Hollandale, Wisconsin and Nachusa Grasslands in Franklin Grove, Illinois. For each scheduled event, members and guests usually meet at E. State Street K-Mart to travel together to our destination.

Our service projects include: donating a hanging basket to the City of Rockford Beatification Project, donating a porch planter to new home owners through Habitat for Humanity, and providing dinner twice a year at the Veterans Drop-In Center.  We enjoy learning about plants, traveling to different locations in the area,  and most of all we enjoy the friendships we gain through gardening.
