To celebrate the beauty of the land...

Horticulture

... to inspire a love of gardening

The Garden Club of Virginia and its member clubs have always focused on horticulture. Whether growing for food, recreation or healing; taking responsibility for a sustainable environment; protecting native species and habitats; or creating beauty in one’s surroundings, horticulturists and gardeners have a significant impact on quality of life for every Virginian. The Garden Club of Virginia strives to inspire a love of gardening through lectures, tours, exhibits and flower shows.
