Our Mission

The Essex County Adirondack Garden Club was founded in 1928 and joined The Garden Club of America in 1933. Its mission is the conserving of the plants, shrubs, and trees native to the Adirondack region and the making of both wild and cultivated gardens characteristic of the environment in which they are placed, the furthering of the cultivation of gardens throughout the Adirondack area, and the promotion of civic beautification and conservation. 

Stretching from the shores of Lake Champlain to Saranac Lake and Lake Placid, the Club’s membership covers a geographical area of 1,824 square miles. The Club’s involvement in civic and conservation affairs is well illustrated by the motto on the Club’s seal, “Non Mihi Soli Laboravi,” “Not for myself alone have I labored.
