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 to promote friendships as well as charitable and civic projects. In the past, the club has sponsored and donated to causes from planting and maintaining the neighborhoods’ common areas and pool/playground, to partnering with a women’s shelter to install gardens for shelter residents to work and relax in.
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 September-May 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, from the Hampton Mansion to a local woman’s shelter. Our 2019-2020 charitable beneficiaries are:
All Ages, All Abilities, All Natural
A local, therapeutic, sustainable farm
TALMAR offers an innovative therapeutic environment providing work skills development, and vocational, educational and recreational programming in horticulture and agriculture. All programs are designed to be inclusive of individuals with physical, mental, or developmental challenges.

FRIENDS OF READBAUGH PARK
With all of the new commercial construction in the Towson core, Radebaugh Park is a new, much needed, open space in east Towson.
The Friends group will coordinate further planning and finding funding for amenities, such as bike racks, benches and shade trees. The group also will be involved with continued maintenance of the park, organizing trash and safety patrols as well as community activities.
