Help Your Community Blossom

Education, resources and networking opportunities for enthusiastic gardeners, both experienced and novice, and the community.

Welcome!

The Tennessee Federation of Garden Clubs 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.

Our
Mission

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.

Our
Headquarters

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

Conservation Camp

Conservation Camp is a two-day informal member meeting held in October during even-numbered years. We usually meet in state parks and have educational sessions on conservation and state environmental issues. There are also nature hikes, arts and crafts related to nature, outdoor activities, and fellowship. Locations rotate through the four districts.

APRIL 2023

State Convention

The State Convention is held in April during odd-numbered years . It is a member gathering for officer installations, business meetings, reports from different districts, educational programs, side trips to the surrounding area to get to know Tennessee better, and a chance to learn from and share with our members across the state. We have chairpersons specializing in garden therapy, native plants, gardening for wildlife, historic gardens, and state arboretums who share information with attendees. Locations rotate through the four districts.
