The Munster Garden Club was founded in 1954 and federated in 1961. We are a member of the National Garden Club, Central Region Garden Club, The Garden Club of Indiana and the Northwest District Garden Club.
The Mission of the Munster Garden Club is to stimulate knowledge and love of gardening, native trees, wild flowers and birds in the community and in the home.
We are proud to be able to show our commitment to the community by financially supporting many projects including the state of Indiana Scholarship program, the Shirley Heinz Land Trust, the Dune Learning Center, Elliot Elementary School Junior Gardeners, the Master Gardeners Scholarship program, Munster High School planters, Planting Possibilities program for the developmentally disabled and the Edible Garden project at Munster Town Hall.
We also maintain the planter outside the main entrance to the Munster Public Library. We also have garden benches at the Rookery in Highland, the Cancer Resource Center and the formal gardens at Centennial Park. In the fall of 2017, we were thrilled to be able to see the culmination of five years of fundraising and planning when the sculpture “Flower Power” was installed at the formal gardens at Centennial Park.
The Munster Garden Club’s main fundraising events are the Plant Sale held each May, as well as our popular Garden Walk held the third weekend of June.
