Be a garden enthusiast

Welcome to The Gardeners of Central Lake County, Illinois. We are a group of gardening enthusiasts that meet once a month with other gardeners for community and to be inspired by outstanding local speakers.

Besides our monthly meetings, listed below, we have yearly activities such as our Plant Sale, Garden and Nature Walks and other social events. 

The club has been in existence since 1949 and we are the proud caretakers of the Lynn Arthur Public Rose Garden in Cook Park, Libertyville, Illinois.

Join us any time. See our full calendar. Download a membership form. Guests are always welcome at our regular monthly member meetings.
