Delaware Federation of Garden Clubs (DFGC) is a non-profit organization that was established in 1958 to serve as a resource for garden clubs throughout the state of Delaware.

OUR MISSION 

The mission of Delaware Federation of Garden Clubs is to:

  • Provide a non-profit, philanthropic, educational and, to a limited extent, scientific association of members.

  • Study and advance, in all its aspects, the fine arts of gardening, landscape
    design, floral design, and horticulture.

  • Aid in the conservation and protection of our natural resources.

  • Coordinate the interests of Delaware Garden Clubs and bring them into closer relations of mutual helpfulness by association, correspondence, and conference.

  • Promote the educational aspects of gardening in youth groups.

  • Further garden therapy programs.

  • Cooperate with other organizations to promote the interests of horticulture, conservation, and civic involvement.

  • Cooperate and assist in carrying out the objectives of National Garden Clubs, Inc. (NGC) and Central Atlantic Region of State Garden Clubs, inc. (CAR-SGC).

  • Meet and exceed the purposes stated in our Bylaws and the Bylaws of National Garden Clubs, Inc.

WHAT WE DO

DFGC members share interesting experiences, discover new interests, develop new skills, and grow lifelong friendships. We enjoy being involved in our communities and take pride in our contributions and accomplishments. As members of National Garden Clubs, Inc., we also enjoy opportunities to participate in local, regional, and national schools and symposiums on floral design, landscape design, gardening, and environmental study.
