Theme: Plant America… Gardening for a Healthy Mind, Body and Soul
Welcome to the Garden Club of New Jersey’s website. As we (the GCNJ), prepare to celebrate our 100th anniversary in 2025, I’m grateful to everyone who has contributed to the mission and legacy of this organization. We are a volunteer, not-for-profit group focused on civic beautification through our shared interest in gardening and the environment. It is my honor to serve as the 51st President.
I look forward to working with the 100+ garden clubs of New Jersey during my tenure and encourage embodying the slogan “The Garden State” as we aim to ensure a bright future for the GCNJ and its members, along with their children, grandchildren and future generations. (My family spans many generations as New Jersey residents... from farming in South Jersey, to fishing at the Shore, to my husband and I living the past 40 years in Bergen County... my parents and grandparents are buried in Bridgeton and my children were born in Englewood Hospital.) Let’s be passionate about our community while promoting the many opportunities offered by the GCNJ.
Please join me in celebrating a love of horticulture, floral design, preservation and conservation by emphasizing my President’s Theme “Plant America: Gardening for a Healthy Mind, Body and Soul” Please refer to the Awards page to learn more about the six $1,000 grants that will be presented to a GCNJ affiliated club during the next two years. Our pursuit of common interests and goals through local action will bring us together while offering positive impacts in the community. Please keep me updated on your club events. I look forward to meeting you and working with your members over these next two years as we promote the mission of the GCNJ and a passion for nature.
The Garden Club of New Jersey, Inc. provides education, resources and opportunities for adults and youth members to expand the love of gardening and floral design and encourages active participation in civic, environmental and historic preservation projects to protect the past for the future.
