There are approximately 1,331 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.

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.  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, by registering,  district meetings, annual state conventions, Wildflower Workshop, September Seminar, and other conferences and schools.

OUR HISTORY

The Garden Club of Indiana, Inc. was founded on April 5, 1930. Mrs. H.B.Burnet, president of the Indiana Federation of Art Clubs, called a meeting of all of the garden clubs in Indiana who were connected with the art club. The purpose of that meeting was to create a state organization of garden clubs. Thirty-one persons voted to create the Garden Club of Indiana that day in the central gallery of the John Herron Art Museum.

Our history has been rich and we have participated in countless projects to support our Mission. Learn about us by downloading our TGCI history overview!
