Founded in 1953 as the Men's Garden Club of Austin, the club changed its name to the Garden Club of Austin in 2002, opening up it s membership to anyone interested in gardening. Today the club is the city's oldest and most respected garden clubs with a busy and active calendar of events.In addition to our monthly club meetings, which include refreshments, presentations, demonstrations on gardening topics and frequently a wonderful selection of plants raffled at the end of most meetings, the club also organizes excursions, an annual flower and vegetable show, plant auction and plant sales.
The Club supports a variety of activities and related organizations, including the Austin Area Garden Council (AAGC), the annual Zilker Garden Festival, the Southwest Region of The Gardeners of America, and our national parent organization, The Men's Garden Club of America (TGOA-MGCA).
