August 15, 2017

In 1939, thousands travelled to the New York World’s Fair to visit The Horticulture Exhibition Gardens on Parade. The GCA contributed the Woodland Garden and Garden of Tomorrow, participating along with the Horticultural Society of New York, The New York Botanical Garden, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Society of American Florists, and the New York Florists’ Club. Harriet Pratt, president of the nonprofit formed to manage the exhibition, also was the first secretary of the GCA (1919-27).
