Mission & Activities
The Garden Club of Indiana, Inc. is a non-profit educational organization, formed in 1930, to stimulate knowledge of gardening; to aid in the protection of trees, plants and birds; and to promote civic beautification.
There are approximately 1331 members in The Garden Club of Indiana, Inc., with 54 member clubs in seven districts. We are a member of National Garden Clubs, Inc., with over 8,000 clubs and over 225,000 members from every state in the nation, plus National Plant Societies and International Affiliates. There are many junior, intermediate and high school gardeners as well.
The fundamental objectives are expanded to meet the needs of today: community beautification; roadside development; good horticultural practices; litter control; aid in the protection of trees, shrubs, wildflowers and birds; and preservation and restoration of historic sites. Each member receives electronically our state publication, Indiana Gardens, and each club president receives the national publication, The National Gardener and the Keeping In Touch publication. At state and national levels, scholarship programs are available for men and women who are planning careers in horticulture or related fields. Members are entitled to attend district meetings, annual state conventions, Wildflower Workshop, September Seminar, and other conferences and schools.
