Meetings: 4th Thursday (morning / times vary)
Enjoy nature’s bounty and beauty
through work and creativity.
The Wildflower Garden Club enjoys informative field trips, programs, socializing and lunch.
Our key focus is to always strive to go to interesting places all around the area. We enjoy learning about plants, traveling to different locations around the area, and most of all we enjoy the friendships we gain through gardening.
Wildflower members visit various greenhouses, nurseries and gardens both public and private to learn more about trees, shrubs and plants to improve our home gardens. For each scheduled trip, members and guests usually meet at the East State Street K-Mart parking lot to travel together to our destination.
Wildflower members enjoy several service projects and donations to the community. We donate a hanging basket to City of Rockford Beautification project ($125), a porch plant to new home owners through Habitat of Humanity and serving dinner at Maya’s House, a shelter for children. We have also made monetary donations to: Severson Dells Environmental Center ($100); Grandview Folk Art Gardens ($75); Rock River Food Pantry: $100; Rock House Kids: $100; Klehm Arboretum Vi Bates Wildflower Garden: $50; Sinissippi Quilt Guild Stocking for Soldiers project: $100. We also donated and served dinner twice at the Veterans Drop-in Center.
