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.

Propagation Opportunities April 4th and 8th

Please join Sally Seeds and Kim Nagy on April 4 for a propagation workshop where we will use the air layering propagation method to propagate a camellia and a quince.  Each participant will begin their own propagations which should result in new plants by September.  Due to physical space restrictions,  we need to limit this workshop to 8 people at a time, but if this fills up, we are happy to add a 2nd date.  

We will begin at Sally's house (3360 Rockingham Drive) at 10:00 am with her camellia bush and then move to Kim's house to propagate a quince. Please email if you would like to attend.    

In addition,  there is another great opportunity to propagate  camellias on Saturday, April 8th from 10 am to noon at Smith-Gilbert Gardens (2382 Pine Mountain Rd, Kennesaw, GA 30152.) Please email for more information and to rsvp for that date.

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!

Photography study in honor of Olmstead

In celebration of Olmsted's 200th birthday, Cherokees were treated to a discussion with our own Newell Harbin as well as Maria Kelly, Curatorial Assistant of Photography at the High Museum, as they discussed some of their favorite photographers looking at parks and landscapes.

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.
