In May of 1921 a group of garden enthusiasts, ten in all, founded the Garden Club of Englewood. The club was invited to become a member of the Garden Club of America in 1923 and helped found the Garden Club of New Jersey in 1926.
We have carried the spirit of our energetic beginnings through the decades. The club's original objective is still pertinent today: "to unite all members in originality in the development of their gardens and in the active personal interest in all branches of horticulture combined with the stimulation of public interest in the cultivation of plants and flowers." To these objectives we have added a strong commitment to civic involvement, conservation, national legislation, and environmental issues.
