The Greater Brookland Garden Club, started in 1998, was founded on the belief that we as neighbors can gather regularly to celebrate the love of gardens and gardening. Through this celebration we can be inspired to appreciate and maintain both our personal gardens and our public gardens. Greater Brookland’s gardens motivate others in our community to share in this fulfilling experience.
The Greater Brookland Garden Club is open to any who wish to join. A nonprofit organization, the GBGC is made up of volunteers and has no paid positions. Donations and proceeds from fundraisers such as the Spring Plant Sale and the Houses & Gardens of Brookland tour are used in the planting and maintenance of gardens such as those at 12th and Michigan Street NE, 12th and Quincy, and 12th and Newton, and other community tree and garden projects.
"To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow."
Membership in the Greater Brookland Garden Club includes invitations to garden parties held every other month at member’s homes, volunteer gardening on 12th Street held every other month, and gardening hints and other information.
Membership in GBGC is $15.00 per household, with dues paid in February (membership is from March to March). Donations above this amount will go towards supporting the community public greenspace. Membership dues cover notices for garden parties and other information for our volunteer organization.
