Garden Club


The Chesopeian Colony Garden Club is a non-profit service organization founded by Margaret McCune in 1957.

We are dedicated to improving and beautifying our neighborhood and community through education, conservation and preservation. 

The Garden Club meets monthly at Foundry United Methodist Church Youth Building on Virginia Beach Boulevard September through May.  Most meetings are the second Tuesday at 6pm and include a social hour followed by a gardening related lecture, class, hands-on project or field trip.  Dues are just $40 per year. 

Membership also includes access to additional events and classes sponsored by the Council of Garden Clubs of Virginia Beach. We also host a club social in December and June of each year.

The club maintains the gardens at the colony entrance, holds a community plant sale in the spring, and supports a number of charities with donations of time, expertise and money.

We welcome new members who love gardening or are interested in learning about this wonderful pastime.  For more information send an email to
