Tennessee Federation
of Garden Clubs, Inc.

Help Your Community Blossom.

This Green Earth Needs You.
Get Involved!


The Tennessee Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc., is an organization made up of enthusiastic gardeners (both experienced and novice) who wish to network with fellow gardeners from across Tennessee.

Networking is key — from monthly meetings and programs to enhance your understanding of plants, horticulture, landscape design, gardening, and the environment to courses in specific schools that focus on many aspects of gardening.


TFGC, a supportive member of National Garden Clubs, Inc., and Deep South Garden Clubs, Inc., educates the public about gardening and nature, floral design, and civic and environmental responsibilities.


The permanent headquarters for TFGC is the Ivan Racheff House and Gardens located at:
1943 Tennessee Avenue
Knoxville, Tennessee 37950-0185
