Because our club is large, the Gainesville Garden Club members have the option of joining one of five different Circles or may also be a General Member of the Club. The Circles meet at varying times on the third Thursday of each month from September through May. The meeting place may change from month to month as programs often include visits to area gardens or activities.

There are meetings and workshops at the Garden Club during the year with educational programs of wide interest for all members and guests. Click on our Calendar for dates and topics.

As a member of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs, our members have opportunities to participate in events at a district, state and national levels. In our District V there are two meetings a year hosted by various clubs in the north central Florida area.

The Gainesville Garden Club is more than 90 years old and proud of the long history and legacy of education and civic involvement. Read our history for a glimpse of the role our members have played in making Gainesville a wonderful community.
