Mostly we want Connecticut represented. Send pictures to Carol Norquist at <>.Then visit the site ( and find pictures for your newsletters and flyers and ideas for projects and plantings and staging and, and, and – it’s all there for you!



The Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut, Inc. is an educational, charitable non-profit organization made up of 6,719 individual members, 128 clubs and 15 affiliate organizations. It is one of thirteen charter members of the National Council of State Garden Clubs, Inc., now known as the National Garden Clubs, Inc., which was organized on May 1,1929, (two days after Connecticut's first meeting), and has had almost continuous representation on the National Board.

National Garden Clubs, Inc. is a service organization dedicated to the development of gardening, the betterment and beautification of the community and the exchange of ideas. It is the largest volunteer gardening organization in the world, comprising nearly a quarter of a million members from every state in the union as well as National and International Affiliates. It is closely unified through the eight regions under a Regional Director, who serves on the Executive Committee.

As garden clubs have grown in Connecticut, The Federation has continued its interests in Civic Development, Environmental Concerns/Conservation, Garden Therapy, Historic and Memorial and Public Gardens, Horticulture, Legislative/Government Action, Public Relations, Scholarships and Youth Activities. It sponsors Flower Show, Landscape Design Study, Gardening Study, and Environmental Studies Schools for the continuing education and benefit of its members. Its Connecticut Federation NEWS publication, which has been in existence almost since the beginning of The Federation, is issued ten times each year to keep members informed of Federation activities and is now emailed to subscribing members at the beginning of the month. A Text-Only version can be downloaded from this website.
