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
