The Adirondack Garden Club was founded in 1928 as the Essex County Adirondack Garden Club. It became a member of the Garden Club of America in 1933. As the club expanded into other counties, its name was shortened in 2015 to Adirondack Garden Club. Its mission is to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening, to aid in the protection of native plants and birds and to encourage civic planting and the conservation of our natural resources.
