The North Shore Garden Club
North Shore, from Evanston to Lake Bluff, and adjoining suburbs
The Club meets approximately six times a year, generally on a Tuesday morning or afternoon. Programs include excursions to private and public gardens, educational presentations by professional speakers, and social events.
Members must reside in one of the North Shore communities from Evanston to Lake Bluff or any suburb contiguous with one of these. The Club has come a long way from the days when chauffeurs deposited ladies with white gloves and hats to enjoy elaborate teas and perhaps hear the guest speaker, Mr. Jens Jensen. Informality reigns today. We are now searching out younger members to add the next generation of gardeners to the club. Yearly dues are $25.
The North Shore Garden Club’s purpose is to:
- Disseminate information and to promote interest in horticultural activities both among its membership and in the general community.
- Provide an outlet for creative expression; to encourage the beautification of property, both civic and private.
- Assist, maintain and encourage the development of botanical gardens and horticultural centers for the advancement of science and the enjoyment and education of the public.
- Further horticultural education, conservation, and landscape design through gift scholarships and other such means.
