For more information on the Guilderland Garden Club, please visit the website:
Located just west of Albany, the Capital of New York State, the Guilderland Garden Club is a community organization that was established in 1964. The Club is a not-for-profit community organization that promotes gardening and civic beautification. The Club currently has over 30 members and is affiliated with National Garden Clubs, Inc, Central Atlantic Region and the Federated Garden Clubs of NY State, Third District.
The Club’s interests and responsibilities include not only the love of gardening but flower design and floral arranging. Club members’ interests also include protection, conservation and education of natural resources, i.e. air, water, forest, land and wildlife. Members of the Club enter and win awards at local, state, national and international flower shows. Some members hold the designation of Master Gardener and/or Master Flower Show Judge.
Meetings are held from March-November and include a business meeting, a presentation or field trip related to birds, gardening techniques, or planning special events. Through our affiliation with the National and Federated Garden Clubs, members are eligible to attend seminars and other training sessions to learn about flower design and judging flower shows. Members of the Garden Club are also members of the Guilderland Historical Society.
Major activities of the Club are the development and maintenance of the award winning perennial garden at the historic Mynderse-Frederick House in Guilderland Center. An annual community holiday greens show and open house are also held at the Mynderse-Frederick House which is co-sponsored by the Guilderland Historical Society. The decorations at the House have earned the Club awards for Historic Decoration and Preservation.
Each year the Guilderland Garden Club presents an educational exhibit about gardening at the Altamont Fair. Members also have garden entries and have won awards in many categories. The club is also involved with the annual Hudson Valley Community
