The mission of the Elmhurst Garden Club is to encourage the advancement and stimulate an interest in horticulture through education; to provide an outlet for creative expression; to encourage the development of home grounds and civic beautification; to aid in the protection of the environment; to further horticultural education, conservation and landscape design through gift scholarships.
In addition to being a group of people who love to garden and talk about it, the club has been, and continues to be, an integral part of the community. It contributes time and funds to the Elmhurst YMCA, Elmhurst Public Schools programs, the Park District and the Elmhurst College Arboretum. Club meetings are held each month at the Wilder Mansion and all are welcome.
