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 had to make a difficult decision in March, 2020.  All meetings were suspended until further notice. We never imagined the impact and devastation this virus would have throughout the entire world. 

The future IS looking better - citizens are rapidly being vaccinated and restriction are easing. However, in our area, active cases are still rising. 

The committee has made the decision to postpone the spring meetings until summer when the weather is beautiful and we can meet outside.  
In July, we can properly celebrate and meet together again for our Annual Salad & Dessert Luncheon on Lake George. 
We will keep everyone posted!!  Stay safe...
