The Garden Club of Manchester was founded in 1920 with the simple mission to promote love for, interest in and knowledge of horticulture.

While the mission has stayed the same, the Club has grown in membership, from 10 to over 100, and the work of the Club can be seen throughout the Manchester/Dorset and surrounding areas, from civic beautification to conservation to education.  Please explore the site to learn more!
