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.
The Lane County Fair is being held July 20- 24, Wednesday-Sunday, at the Events Center. Garden club members will be hostessing during the times the Fair is open to the public. Bring Floral Department entries in on the afternoon of Tuesday, July 19. Judging is on Wednesday, the day the Fair opens. See the fair website (www.atthefair.com) for horticulture entries and flower arrangement themes. It also has dates for submission of those entries.
All departments’ categories are now open on the website. To find that, use Lane County Fair Entries, chose Creative Exhibits, and down at the bottom, the 2022 Fair Book is available to peruse.
The Lane County Fair has asked our District Garden Clubs to plant the oak barrels that get scattered around the area during the Fair. Our barrels were planted on May 26, using plants donated by Coastal Farm & Ranch and EGC members.
