We are a group of gardeners who have organized on a local, state, national, and international level. Eighteen local clubs and two plant societies make up the Arizona Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc. Fifty State Garden Clubs, the National Capital Area Garden Club, and 447 international affiliates make up the National Garden Clubs, Inc. Our members create a powerful voice and expansive network for advancing common interests, not only from our local communities but all over the world. We provide education, resources, and national networking opportunities for our members to promote the love of gardening, floral design, and civic and environmental responsibility.
Our love of gardening and design
Our concern for conservation of our natural resources
Our desire to educate our youth about gardening and the natural world
Our commitment to better our communities through civic projects
We promote the love and knowledge of gardening through speakers, conferences, schools. We offer scholarships such as: Flower Show School, Wildflower symposia, horticulture/natural resources scholarships for Arizona college students and many other Arizona youth programs. We partner with a wide range of local, state and national organizations to support and actively participate in community projects. Our goals are to encourage gardening, horticulture, and protecting our natural environment. Our clubs emphasize good conservation practices including wise water use in planning community projects and our own personal landscapes. We advocate the use of appropriate plants; it is of the highest priority, such that neither rare nor invasive species are used in plantings or designs within our clubs.
