Founded in 1928, the Adirondack Garden Club's mission is to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening, to aid in the protection of native plants and birds, and to encourage civic planting and the conservation of our natural resources.

Welcome from our President

Welcome to the website for the Adirondack Garden Club.  Our members currently hail from the Clinton, Essex, and Franklin counties, a geographical area stretching from the shores of Lake Champlain westward beyond Lake Placid and Saranac Lake to Tupper Lake, an astonishing 1,824 square miles and two separate USDA climate zones.

Adirondack Garden Club: Who We Are

The Adirondack Garden Club turns 90 this year!  We have been a proud chapter of the Garden Club of America (GCA) since 1933.  Founded in 1913, The Garden Club of America is a volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization comprised of 200 member clubs and approximately 18,000 club members throughout the country.

Looking back, we see a strong organization committed to the delights and hard work found in all aspects of gardening, the magic and mysteries of horticulture, the delight in floral design and garden restoration and environmental conservation of this uniquely held Adirondack region. 

Our founders started what we continue to this day: public service and education, partnering with others who share our gardening passion and raising awareness of conservation issues within our region. We provide scholarships to promote gardening pursuits and conservation efforts, and merit awards to those in our region whose contributions have been outstanding.

Our motto "Non Mihi Soli Laboravi" is a fitting tribute to all gardeners - Not For Myself Alone Have I Labored.
