The Garden Club of America

Member of The Garden Club of America since 1969


Founded in 1913, The Garden Club of America is a nationally recognized leader in the fields of horticulture, conservation, floral design, civic improvement and historic preservation. A non-profit association of 200 member clubs located throughout the US, GCA has been highly successful in inspiring its 18,000 club members and the public to create, preserve and protect our natural landscape.


Volunteers are involved in a wide array of efforts that support and further this mission — from the promotion of sustainable agriculture and seed diversity to planting vegetable gardens with urban school children, from indexing endangered plants in our national park system to documenting and recording historically significant American gardens, from keeping current on local and national activity in environmental legislation to encouraging research and field work through scholarship awards — GCA club members make a positive impact on the communities in which they live and work.
