Organized in 1931 and incorporated in 1937, we became a state affiliate of the National Garden Clubs in 1933. Within our organization are more than 30 local and regional garden clubs throughout Colorado. We have events and activities of interest to gardeners and those involved in horticulture, flower arranging and landscape design.
We hope you find our web site of use and are able to participate in some of our events and activities as well as maybe attend a club meeting near you.

Our history dates back to 1891. The first garden club in America was founded in January 1891 by The Ladies Garden Club of Athens, Georgia. On May 1, 1929, 13 federated states became charter members at an organizational meeting in Washington, D.C. In 1935, the National Garden Clubs established headquarters at Rockefeller Center in New York City. A permanent headquarters building in St. Louis was dedicated May 10, 1958.
Today, National Garden Clubs, Inc., (NGC) is a not-for-profit educational organization headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri USA, adjacent to the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Our organization comprises 50 state garden clubs and the National Capital Area, nearly 6,000 member garden clubs and nearly 200,000 members. Additionally, NGC has 70 national affiliated organizations within the United States and nearly 300 international affiliated organizations with locations ranging around the globe including: Canada, Mexico, South America, Bermuda, South Africa, Australia and Japan.
The 2013-2015 Rocky Mountain theme is“Tread Lightly on Land and Water” asking members to leave nature as undisturbed as possible or even to try to return an area back to its natural environment. As Regional Director I am asking that the Conservation Pledge be recited at RMR Garden Club meetings as a reminder of this theme.
