The Garden Club of Princeton

Founded in 1911

Founded in 1911, The Garden Club of Princeton is a charter member of The Garden Club of America, which was established two years later. The GCP's mission is to promote the knowledge and love of gardening; to support the activities initiated by The Garden Club of America; and to restore, improve, and protect the quality of our environment and the Princeton community. The Garden Club of Princeton is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

We enrich our community through conservation, civic projects, and service. Current projects include:

The Garden Club of Princeton gifted four Cornus florida ‘Appalachian Spring” Dogwoods to Marquand Park and Arboretum. Cornus florida, commonly known as flowering dogwood, is a small deciduous tree that typically grows 15-30’ tall and blooms in the spring. It arguably may be the most beautiful of the native American flowering trees.
