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.
BEE A HERO!
Photographs of pollinator plants are featured throughout our website in support of the Million Pollinator Garden
Delaware garden clubs invite you to join us in planting pollinator-friendly gardens to attract butterflies, hummingbirds
and beneficial insects. This effort will help to replace their native habitat, which residential and commercial developments
have consumed in many areas of Delaware.
Several of the photographs displayed on our website were finalists in the 2017 NGC Photography Contest and many others were provided by Delaware nature photographer Ken Arni or DFGC members.
