Roswell Garden Club Meeting--
Georgia Garden Club of the Year: 2007, 2012, 2014, and 2017
Garden Clubs: Connecting Plants and People Since 1891
Athens, Georgia, was the birthplace of the American Garden Club movement. In 1891, by invitation only, The Ladies Garden Club of Athens was formed by 12 women. The next year, according to club records, membership was, “…thrown open (to) every lady in the city who might be interested in learning to grow anything ‘from a cabbage to a chrysanthemum.’” Today the national organization is incorporated and boasts 5,000 member clubs throughout the 50 states with more than 250,000 individual members.
The club’s goals have withstood the test of time and are as important and relevant as they were in 1929: "To promote a love of gardening for the amateur and the professional; to protect our native trees, wild flowers and birds; and to encourage a regard for civic beauty in our various communities."
Are you looking for a new challenge or a way to connect with others and help the community? Roswell Garden Club (RGC) is ready when you are, and it is open to all ages and skill levels. This volunteer organization is like no other; opportunities to learn and grow as a gardener and make a positive impact on the community abound:
· Field trips to enjoy public/private gardens, nurseries, and historic sites across the state
· Floral Design/Flower arranging: classes and competition
· Speakers/workshops help members stay current on gardening trends
· Leadership opportunities: organizing, planning, executing projects large and small
The interests and pursuits of our club members are diverse: garden therapy, historic preservation and markers, roadside beautification, youth programs, scholarships, and more. You do not have to live in Roswell to participate.
Our mission is to foster an appreciation for gardening, encourage conservation advocacy, and support community beautification efforts.
If you love plants/nature and feel a strong connection to the community, you should attend a meeting. RGC is an enduring organization with a rich legacy of education and service.
