Welcome to The Gardeners of Central Lake County, Illinois. We are a group of gardening enthusiasts that meet once a month for community with other gardeners and to be inspired by outstanding local speakers. Besides the monthly meetings we have yearly activities such as Plant Sale, Garden walk etc. The club has been in existence since 1959. We are affiliated with Gardeners of America and American Horticulture Society.
