November 08, 2017

According to the GCA’s 2017 annual survey of club presidents, community gardens are a high priority for hands-on involvement. Some 76 percent of member clubs worked with a total of 429 local or community gardens, an average of more than three gardens per club. In addition, 51 clubs worked in 79 school gardens, and 75 clubs worked with 143 gardens around historic homes. Nearly half of clubs worked in pollinator gardens or in local, regional, or national parks. Almost a quarter worked in arboretums or botanic gardens.
