History: During regular breakfast meetings of the Glenview Chamber of Commerce, a frequent subject of conversation was gardening and the Glenview Gardeners club was born. While specialty groups were well-established, the new group would focus on the general aspects of planning, designing, establishing and maintaining gardens and the rewards associated with both the interior and exterior landscaping of a home. The first meeting was held in January of 1991 and the group has met every month since.
Purpose: To bring together men and women who enjoy gardening to advance the knowledge of horticulture and to promote gardening in the Village of Glenview.
Programs: Please refer to the Calendar of Events page for program information.
NEW MEETING LOCATION: Meetings are at the Glenview Public Library Multipurpose Room from 7:00 pm to 8:45 pm. 1930 Glenview Rd, Glenview, IL 60025 unless otherwise noted.
