Welcome

The official purpose of the club is to improve the quality and character of gardens; to study subjects pertaining to gardening; to exchange experiences and information on gardening problems and to encourage the protection of natural resources, native plants, wildlife and scenery. The unofficial purpose of the club is to enjoy the company of other gardeners; to learn from each other; to expand our knowledge of gardening and garden design through informative meetings and field trips and to help beautify and enhance our community through a range of projects.

Our meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month, September through June, usually at the Great Falls Library, at 1:00 pm. Nonmembers wishing 2013_GFGC_Logo_Finalto attend a meeting should either be a guest of a member or contact the Club via email for information. We can be reached at  gfgardener@gfgardenclub.org or by mail at P.O. Box 1412, Great Falls, Virginia 22066.

Club members are now working on an updated diagram and list of plants in the perennial garden that runs along the sidewalk from Georgetown Pike to the library’s entrance, as well as a binder of information on the library meadow that fills the storm water retention pond and is visible from Georgetown Pike. We plan to make this information available at the reference desk in the library. Hopefully it will address your plant identification questions as well as help you plan your own gardens. If you’d like to follow our library meadow blog, which is updated seasonally and when we add plants or grasses, please check it out at greatfallsgardenclub.wordpress.com  .

Also check out the Resources section of this website, where we have posted links to a wealth of information on gardening, plant selection, diseases and pests, invasive plants, native plants, nearby botanical gardens and book suggestions.
