Baltimore City Garden Clubs is a member of the National Garden Clubs of America, Central Atlantic Region Garden Clubs and Federated Garden Clubs of Maryland. We are home to 20 of the 107 Federated clubs spread throughout the state. In 1929, Federated Garden Clubs of Maryland was one of sixteen charter state organizations that organized what is now the National Garden Clubs, Inc., a nonprofit educational organization headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, with approximately 200,000 members in over 6,000 clubs. Through its education series, programs and awards, FGCMD coordinates the interests of garden clubs in protecting trees, shrubs, wildflowers and birds and in encouraging horticulture and conservation practices in home, community, and state. Its headquarters is located at the Vollmer Center at Cylburn Arboretum located in the City of Baltimore.

"Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, and working together is progress."
Henry Ford


In order to cultivate gardens in urban areas, the vision of leaders is necessary. That vision emerges through innovators who are able to motivate others to learn and grow healthy gardens, healthy people and healthy neighborhoods throughout Baltimore City.

Improving on the norm takes this kind of vision, motivation, hard work and commitment to stimulate such growth. Let’s commit to making that leadership evident in our Baltimore City communities by planting sustainable gardens that will feed us both physically and spiritually.

Our pollinators are in danger. Our children are in danger. Our way of life is in danger. Please join us in increasing our odds by planting much-needed gardens to influence our ecological resiliency.

Whether you’re interested in wildlife gardens, serenity gardens, gardens on rooftops, in backyards or neighborhood spaces, we can help you learn to make those dreams come true. Garden Clubs are volunteer organizations consisting of visionary leaders that promote the love of gardening through education and good old fashion hard work. Take a stance in your community and lead by example. Plant a garden. Let’s do it together! Join us today.
