Current Activities of the Silver Spring Garden Club

The general meetings of the Silver Spring Garden Club are open to the public. The meetings are held normally on the third Monday of every month (except July, August, and December) starting at 8:00pm. We meet at the Brookside Gardens’ Visitors Center/Education Building auditorium, 1800 Glenallan Avenue, in Silver Spring, Maryland. Our monthly meetings are popular not only with our members, but the attending public as well. Knowledgeable and respected lecturers are chosen from the gardening world to give presentations at each meeting. These programs are outlined each month in our newsletter, The Grapevine.

Club dues are $10 per year for an individual and $15 per year for couple or household. Dues are payable by January 1st. Our dues cycle runs with the calendar year.

The Silver Spring Garden Club has its own online Yahoo discussion list. If you are a member of the club and have email access, please sign up for our online list today — instructions are below. It is very important that we have as many of our members on this list as possible in the case of a meeting cancellation due to bad weather or we have a last-minute offer of a garden tour.

We want to keep you all informed and involved.

Workshops, tours, and special programs are planned during the year and are announced in The Grapevine. Club members volunteer for various Club committees to carry on its activities.

The Club’s annual elections and business meeting are held in November. The Silver Spring Garden Club Constitution and Bylaws are available to any member upon request.

The Club works on two continuing local park projects: planting daffodil bulbs each Veteran’s Day at Jesup Blair Park and helping maintain the native garden in Ellsworth Urban Park.

On the Saturday before Mother’s Day weekend in May our annual "Garden Mart," is held at Brookside Gardens. The Mart is eagerly awaited by the gardening community. The sale of annuals, perennials, herbs, and vegetables, plants from members' gardens, and a raffle has helped fund our contributions to worthy causes since 1940.  It is also supported by area merchants. Club members who volunteer at the Garden Mart receive a 10% discount off Mart purchases.
