The seeds of North Plains Community Garden Club come from many different sources, but whether we live in town or on a farm, grow houseplants or commercial crops, we all care about plants and the environment. Sharing gardening skills and knowledge with others is foremost in our club. NPCGC members act as caretakers for our natural resources, including air, water, land, forests, and wildlife.
 Each year our club creates the many hanging baskets installed in downtown North Plains. We have also constructed a wooden wall at Glencoe and Commercial streets, the entrance to downtown North Plains, where each year we plant a colorful display of plants and bulbs.


We continue to maintain and improve the property, installing trees and grasses, and most recently adding a custom-made iron commemorative bench. 


We have purchased a Blue Star Memorial, donated it to the city, and arranged installation at the Fire Department.

Members also participate annually in the Washington County Fair, both as organizers and entrants.

Our largest fundraiser is the Annual Plant Sale, always held the first Saturday in May at Jessie Mays Community Hall. For this sale, we grow thousands of plants including: herbs, vegetables, annuals, perennials, as well as making pre-planted hanging baskets and pots, and garden art.

Profits from fundraising efforts are used to supplement North Plains' landscaping, create children's gardens, provide supplies for a local recovery center, and award scholarships, along with various projects focusing on beautification, charity, and education.

We support our community and invite you to join us.
