Who We Are

The Capitol Hill Garden Club brings together Washington area people interested in gardening, landscaping and the environment. Members enjoy lectures, demonstrations, workshops and tours.

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. We undertake community projects and contribute to garden and beautification projects in our neighborhood. In recent years the club donated thousands of spring flowering bulbs to groups and individuals for planting in public areas on Capitol Hill. Our income comes from selling spring flowering bulbs at Eastern Market every autumn, from membership dues and donations.

We are a member of National Garden Clubs, Inc., and District I of National Capital Area Garden Clubs, Inc.

Azalea Clean Up at National Arboretum

April 7, 2012:   Member Bob Fuller participated in the annual azalea clean up at the U.S. National Arboretum.  Though threatened with "deaccessation," the azaleas during their bloom attract more visitors to the National Arboretum than any other event.
