Garden clubs are fabulous places to learn to garden and connect with other gardeners. Here are the DC area’s general-interest garden clubs with websites that are known to DCGardens, listed alphabetically. There are also many plant societies with local chapters, easily found on the web. (E.g. the National Capital Orchid Society.)
To get your club added, send us the link to your home page. If you don’t have one, there are many free website platforms available, like Blogger.com, or simply the home page of a Yahoo Group. (That’s what the Silver Spring Club uses.) Email firstname.lastname@example.org. (We’re not listing contact phone numbers or email addresses – web addresses only.)
