The Northfield Garden Club was founded in 1950, and since that time has provided garden club members with educational opportunities in all aspects of gardening and floral design.
In addition, the club maintains a number of sites in Northfield, including the planters and gardens at Bridge Square and the Pergola area in Riverside Park. Activities of the club include monthly meetings, sponsored events (such as tours of Northfield gardens, bus trips to Minneapolis gardens, and plant sales).
