Roselle Park District Garden Club

Welcome to the Roselle Park District Garden Club, Established in 2008
District II, Central Region
The Garden Clubs of Illinois, Inc. and National Garden Clubs, Inc.

Welcome!  The RPDGC is a group of dedicated community members who share a love of all things related to gardening.  Whether you are a new homeowner, an experienced gardener or somewhere in between, we offer informative programs, inspiring outings and fun activities you will find beneficial and enjoyable!  

Our meetings are on the first Thursday of the month, September through June.  Due to changing COVID-19 mitigation protocols, our meetings vary between in-person and virtual via Zoom.  Please see our Facebook page for current meeting locations.  Our monthly gatherings cover a wide range of gardening related topics from gardening, environmental issues, trees and more. Additionally, our club sponsors a variety of community activities and events like a Plant and Flower Sale,  the community IMPACT giving garden located on the grounds of Roselle Middle School, beautification events, community wide garden walks and field trips for members.  No matter your level of interest, there is something for everyone.  Follow us on Facebook for updates on our events, stop by a “virtual” meeting to find out more or drop us an email if you have a question.  Membership in our club is open to anyone 18 years of age and older. You need not live in Roselle to join.

We look forward to having you join us!

Warm regards,
Valerie A. Della Penna
RPDGC President
