The GCA's Statement on COVID-19 Coronavirus


April 03, 2020

A focus on the health and safety of our club members and staff

The Garden Club of America (GCA) is monitoring the COVID-19 public health crisis carefully, and the health and safety of our club members and staff are our primary concern.

All GCA meetings and events for the months of March, April, and May have been cancelled, and the New York City Headquarters is temporarily closed. Staff members are working from home, and GCA business is being conducted successfully. GCA volunteers are accustomed to working remotely, so they continue to serve clubs and club members — delivering highly valued resources and services.

Events across the country have been cancelled by member clubs, and most club members are now sheltering in place according to state and local directives. Meetings and communications are increasingly being held through electronic means, keeping relationships strong during these difficult times. 

For 107 years, GCA member clubs have shared the advantages of association through educational meetings and conferences, and we look forward to the time when it is safe to resume these efforts to restore, improve, and protect the quality of the environment.

As we fight this battle together, we extend sincere wishes for health and safety to everyone.
