Who We Are.
The Eugene Garden Club organized on April 28 1927 and became a member of the Oregon State Federation of Garden Clubs in 1929. The club formed to stimulate the love of gardening, horticulture and floral artistry; to aid in the protection and conservation of plants, trees and birds; and to promote civic beauty and community welfare.
The Eugene Garden Club is a tax exempt public charity under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and is organized exclusively for charitable, educational, scientific and benevolent purpose.
We’re looking at an active couple of months at the garden club.
