Worcester Garden Club
ROOTED IN HISTORY
The Worcester Garden Club is a member of The Garden Club of America and National Garden Clubs, Inc. It was founded in 1919 by two enterprising women, Frances Morse and Gertrude Whitall. When inspired by a Flower Show held at Horticultural Hall (original home of Worcester County Horticultural Society, the third oldest horticultural society in the country), these women decided to invite interested colleagues to take part in their new venture. Meetings were held in people’s homes with the purpose of advancing horticultural knowledge to its members. Activities included educational programs, flower shows, garden tours and community service. These activities continue today.
All community members may use the information on our website to further your knowledge and understanding of the art of gardening, the science of horticulture and the conservation of all our national and local resources.

The Worcester Garden Club is an integral partner in many civic projects in our community.
The unique and tranquil Arboretum & Gardens within Worcester's largest park was created and continues to be maintained through a collaborative effort of the Worcester Garden Club and the City of Worcester.
WGC also supports local organizations through civic projects.
