How to join a Garden Club

Joining a Garden Club is the best and fastest way to make friends with people of all ages and similar interests of being outdoors. If you want to learn more about gardening or want to share your love of flowers and shrubs then this is going to be the best way to do it!

Membership to Crown Point Garden Club

We currently have 40 members of all ages ranging from 40 to 90. There is no hourly requirement you would need to meet to join the club. Everyone participates at their own level on our Civic Projects or Fundraisers. 

We do 3 Fundraisers a year to help fund our gardening projects around the City of Crown Point. A Plant Sale, a Yard Sale, and a Mum Sale. For more information on these Fundraisers (Dates and times) please visit our Facebook Page and click on Events. 

Our civic projects are:

The Pollinator Garden, The Covered Bridge Garden and the Courthouse Garden. 

The Pollinator Garden 

Located inside the Lake County Fairgrounds on the South side of the Fine Arts Building. As a club and a non profit, we faced the challenge of having to dismantle/relocate this garden due to the necessary widening of a drainage ditch on the corner of Lake Street and Greenwood. Partnering with the Lake County Fairgrounds staff, we were able to reinvent our treasured pollinator garden and made it even bigger and more visible to the community.

Covered Bridge Garden

Located inside the Lake County Fairgrounds in the Northwest corner. This garden is enjoyed by Crown Point residents year round by families using the Fairgrounds for exercise, picnics, weddings and just for the pure enjoyment of being outside. See a picture below.

This garden is located in historic downtown Crown Point Square. We take care of the beds located on the East side of the Courthouse framing either side of the stairs. See picture below. These garden beds are enjoyed by tourists, locals and many more who live or are visiting Downtown Crown Point.
