Founded in 1936 as the Men’s Garden of Villa Park, we are now known as the Garden Club of Villa Park,
with a mission to foster gardening and fellowship. These goals continue to be the focus of the Garden Club today,
which welcomes all men and women gardeners, 15 years of age or older and actively interested
in home gardening. We are a non-profit group of gardeners, both men and women.

Our Annual Plant Sale is scheduled for Friday, May 12 and
Saturday May 13, 2017, from 8 am to 3 pm.
