The Lake Forest Garden Club
Organized in 1970, we have more than 100 members who belong to our club. The mission of our Lake Forest Garden Club has been to create, stimulate and inspire an interest in gardening. We accomplish this through our monthly meetings, informative guest speakers, plant and seed exchanges, workshops and field trips.
First & foremost, we are garden enthusiasts. Our club has many different backgrounds and talents. Some are beginning gardeners; others have a much broader knowledge of gardening. We share our knowledge and love of gardening with each other.
We enjoy spending time together through our shared passion of gardening. Our members work closely together and really step up to give each other a helping hand. In doing so we have many other common interests, we have also become great friends.
Our theme for 2022 -2023 "Where there is a Garden, there is Hope." Our President, Pat Chong, believes it is the love of gardening that brings us together and everlasting friendships keeping us together.
During the year, we raise money to fund:
Scholarships for horticulture college students from our community;
Pollinator kits for elementary students to promote interest in nature
Guest speakers to help us cultivate our own skills and knowledge
Our club's objectives include creating, stimulating, and inspiring interest in amateur gardening, floral and landscape design.
