Our History

   The club achieved federated status in June 1966, after Florence Traver decided the Lake George Community needed  an organization to promote gardening & community service.

 Over the years, the club has grown and now has a total of  65 active, 1 associate and 9 honorary members from many communities - Glens Falls, Queensbury, Lake George, Warrensburg, and as far away as Elizabethtown, Minerva, Mechanicville, and more.

Membership is open to all interested gardeners.  Click on (Contact Us) to join

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the LGCGC Executive Committee has been monitoring pandemic statistics closely to decide if we can start to meet again. With cases rising again in our area, we are going on a month to month basis for holding regular meetings. 

In July, we met at the home of Kim Cavarretta.             Members brought box lunches                                    and their own beverage. Fun to                                    finally get together again!


August: Rainy weather cancelled our luncheon at the home of Teresa Rescorl.  

September:  Luncheon was rescheduled. Again the weather forced us to move the meeting to Harrisena Church. Members brought a bag lunch. The business meeting covered many important topics, future events, and projects. 

October: Fall Plant Sale, Ruel's Garden,748 Ridge Rd. Members have volunteered this summer to weed  and help maintain the extensive Ruel gardens after the sad passing of        long-time member Eileen Ruel. the gardens are now being downsized and Roger Ruel has offered to donate his perennials to the Garden Club.    
Members have worked many hours dividing, potting, labeling and pricing the extensive variety of more than 100 healthy perennials.   Sale Details: 
When: Saturday, October 2, 2021, 9:00am - 2:00pm 
 Where: 748 Ridge Rd. (corner of Ridge Rd. & Chestnut Ridge Rd.)
What: Most perennials have been potted in large pots with large root masses to be divided or planted as is to provide a mass of beautiful flowers next year. Plants are reasonably priced to sell.
Come early ... plants go quickly!  .
** Planting in the fall gives the plants the opportunity to develop strong roots to ensure vigorous, healthy, blooms next summer.
