We promote civic development and service projects of individual clubs, encouraging clubs to apply for State, Regional and National Awards.  Garden Therapy for the handicapped, Historic Preservation, and Habitat for Humanity as well as Community and Environmental projects are but a few of the programs our members are involved in.


We promote youth activities and Junior Garden Clubs.                                                                                                                                            

We award an annual scholarship to local college students in Horticulture related majors.


We offer opportunities through participation in local, area and national schools and symposiums on floral design, landscape design gardening and environmental study.


Currently our membership is made up of 25 clubs. We hope that you will consider becoming a member of a garden club in your area. Join us as we strive to improve the State of Delaware through beautification, conservation, civic and environmental projects and hopefully, leave a legacy for future generations
