Central Atlantic Region of State Garden Clubs (CAR-SGC)

Garden clubs come together throughout Delaware, Maryland, National Capital Area, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania for opportunities to plant, protect, create, learn, and network with others who share our interests. We do this through membership in National Garden Clubs, Inc. and Central Atlantic Region of State Garden Clubs. Inc.

CAR-SGC is a non-profit corporation that was formed in October 2016 to succeed the unincorporated region of National Garden Clubs, Inc. that was known as the Central Atlantic Region. This organization, which was established in 1929 by Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Ohio, brings together gardeners areawide to create opportunities for all of us.

CAR-SGC hosted the first ever Blooming-ZOOM Festival in October 2020. This was a four-day extravaganza of educational and entertaining programs presented via ZOOM to pre-registered participants. Many thanks to the committee members who planned, organized and conducted this event, including DFGC members Margaret Woda and Mary Williford!
