Capitol Hill Garden Club In Washington, D.C., Since 1952

Welcome To The Capitol Hill Garden Club
Who We Are

The Capitol Hill Garden Club brings together Washington area people interested in gardening, landscaping and the environment.

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.


What We Do

Members enjoy lectures, demonstrations, workshops and tours. These meetings include local experts on topics of interest to Capitol Hill gardeners, such as landscape design, ornamentals, annuals, perennials, native species, garden wildlife, pest control, container gardening, orchids, irrigation, xeriscape, and many more.

We undertake community projects and contribute to gardening and beautification projects in our neighborhood, e.g., the Club has donated spring flowering bulbs to groups and individuals for planting in public areas on Capitol Hill. 

The Club income comes from membership dues, grants & donations, and other fund-raising activities.


Where We Meet

Meetings are held at Northeast Library 330 Seventh Street, NE Washington, D. C. 20002.

Refreshments begin at 6:45 p.m. The program starts at 7:15 and concludes by 9 p.m.

Special Events are held at selected venues on and around Capitol Hill.
