About The Garden Club

Since 1935, when its first members planted rose bushes at the train depot, The Garden Club of Danville has been beautifying our community and enriching the lives of women and men who love gardening. Whether your interests include floral design, conservation and wildlife, youth activities, garden therapy, or growing flowers, fruits, and vegetables, we have a place for you.

Our monthly meetings present new ideas through inspiring speakers or creative mini-workshops. Regular field trips expose us to horticulture and garden design throughout central Kentucky. A community with an active garden club is a more beautiful place, a greener space, and a community with an environmental conscience. COME JOIN OURS!

All are welcome!
