MEET THE CLUB
Organized in 1957, the Wiltondale Garden Club is a member of the Federated Garden Clubs of Maryland, Inc., District III., and National Garden Clubs, Inc.
The Club consists of residents of the Wiltondale neighborhood in Towson, and exists as a 501c3 charitable organization – we promote friendships as well as charitable and civic projects. In the past, the club has sponsored and donated to causes such as planting and maintaining the neighborhoods’ common areas, partnering with a women’s shelter to install gardens for shelter residents to work and relax in, and organizing and hosting a symposium on the local effects of global warming.
The club depends on it’s annual plant sales to finance our charitable work.
The speed of life has changed since the club was founded, and like many clubs, membership has ebbed and waned over the years, but our members know that it’s important to take some time to ‘smell the roses’ and make the effort to be together for lunch and learning once each month of our March-October meeting schedule.
The Wiltondale Garden Club works and fundraises to support local charities and civic groups large and small, and with both financial donations and time, and is a 501c3 charitable organization.
Since 1957, the Wiltondale Garden Club has worked to provide education and conservation in the Towson, Maryland area by supporting an array of local gardens and groups.
Thanks to your support of our plant sales each April and October, the garden club is able to invest in local community organizations by donating time, money, and gardening expertise. Each year the club takes on projects to beautify and green surrounding areas.

The Wiltondale Garden Club membership is kept small enough to host all members in our homes, but there are occasionally spaces available.
We meet the 2nd Monday of the month, from May through September at 11:30 for lunch and a speaker. Dues are $60 per year. Members are expected to host and provide lunches on a rotating basis, as well as contribute time and expertise to our community projects.
If you’re a Wiltondale resident, or reside in a nearby neighborhood, and would like to inquire about joining, just contact us! You don’t have to be a gardening expert, just an interested learner ready to jump in to work with us.
