Cherokee Garden Club was founded in 1928 in Atlanta, Georgia.  It became a member of the Garden Club of Georgia in 1928, and a member of the Garden Club of America (GCA) in 1963.  Cherokee is part of GCA's Zone VIII.

The purpose of the Club shall be to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening and to protect, improve and restore the quality of the environment through programs and action in the fields of education, conservation and civic improvement. As members of the Garden Club of America we share and support the advantages of association by means of open meetings, conferences, correspondence and publications.

Founded in 1913, The Garden Club of America is a volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization comprised of 200 member clubs and approximately 18,000 club members throughout the country.   For more information about the Garden Club of America, click here.

Introducing the Newest Cherokees

Cherokee’s four newest members-elect and their sponsors gathered on January 12th with committee heads at Kim Nagy’s lovely home for their first orientation. They learned about Cherokee’s many areas of involvement and enjoyed getting to know each other. Pictures from left are new members Michele Nichols, Caroline Crawford, Burch Hanson, and Kelly Knox.

Junior/Senior Member Gathering

Adelaide Burton hosted a group of members-elect and more long serving Cherokees for a festive Junior-Senior. All were treated to tales of Cherokee Garden Club adventures and accomplishments of years past and enjoyed the chance to connect across generations. The event gave our new members a deeper appreciation of Cherokee’s long and rich history and was an opportunity for our most senior members to get a glimpse of Cherokee’s enthusiastic and talented future. The Junior-Senior is quickly becoming a favorite club tradition and for good reason. How lucky we all are to share in Cherokee’s rich past, present, and future and enjoy such meaningful relationships with each other. Thank you to Adelaide for hosting us on such a lovely spring afternoon and to all who participated.

April is Native Plant Month

We did it Georgia! April is officially Native Plant Month 2023 in Georgia!  National Native Plant Month Initiative is the GCA’s nationwide, multidisciplinary, cross-committee collaboration to promote native plants by formally establishing a Native Plant Month in all fifty states by April 2023. What can you do? As you plan your spring landscaping and gardens, include native plants in all your beds! 

Pictured: Callicarpa americana, American beautyberry. Native in southern American states, this shrub produces large clusters of purple berries, which birds and deer eat, thus distributing the seeds.

May Membership Meeting

Cherokees enjoyed a beautiful morning and wonderful presentation on composting by the ever popular duo, Duncan Beard and Marian Smith.

On May 6, Cherokee and Peachtree Conservation Committees joined forces to honor Olmstead's 200th birthday by cleaning out invasive plant species from The Deepdene Forest - part of Olmstead's beautiful Linear Park.

Summer Trough Workshop

Cherokees enjoyed a two-day trough making workshop in June. Click here for pictures of the team at work and the final product. The troughs have to cure for two months before they can be planted. They will make beautiful entries for the November Flower Show!
