New in 2017, we partner with the Chicago branch of the organization to deliver flowers to flowers to the sick and elderly who would not ordinarily receive flowers. We will start to collect vases and work on dates to produce arrangements for this project.

Members help establish plantings of native plants in the conservancy. Approximately 20% of our membership are actively involved with this project. SBGC has installed a Pollinator Garden at the Conservancy and has been able to work on this project through the pandemic.
Blue Star Marker
As a member of the Council of Barrington Area Garden Clubs, we take an active part in the maintenance of the marker on Highway 68 southwest of the Barrington Hills Village Hall. It marks where a group of volunteers signed up to fight in the Civil Way and then walked to Chicago. There was one woman who participated. Our club just completed fall clean up and planting of more spring bulbs.
