Ever wondered what goes on at a garden club meeting? Stop in to find out...

Illinois Dunesland Garden Club is for gardeners in Northeastern Illinois and Southeastern Wisconsin. We are a well established garden club;we have been meeting since 1937.  Our club has gardeners, new and old; we are always looking for new and interested gardeners--you don't have to be a master gardener to be included! 

We meet monthly at the Zion Benton Library (unless otherwise noted), except in the summer when we have tours, activities, workshops and classes. We like to share our knowledge as well as intoduce new ideas and techniques through meetings and programs. We have over eighty members and are growing each year.
