Cherokee Garden Club was founded in 1928 in Atlanta, Georgia.  It became a member of the Garden Club of Georgia in 1928, and a member of the Garden Club of America (GCA) in 1963.  Cherokee is part of GCA's Zone VIII.

The purpose of the Club shall be to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening and to protect, improve and restore the quality of the environment through programs and action in the fields of education, conservation and civic improvement. As members of the Garden Club of America we share and support the advantages of association by means of open meetings, conferences, correspondence and publications.

Founded in 1913, The Garden Club of America is a volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization comprised of 200 member clubs and approximately 18,000 club members throughout the country.   For more information about the Garden Club of America, click here.

Louise Howard Park

Cherokees are hard at work on updating the landscape plan for Louise Howard Park.  Thanks to the generosity of Mary Palmer, an updated drawing will be submitted to the City of Atlanta for work we would like to undertake this year for the Parks Department's approval.  Once the plan is approved, restoration of the rock garden will begin followed by a spring planting.  

Pollinators Go Postal

The USPS has recently issued five new stamps in their Protect Pollinator series.  Each stamp depicts either the Monarch Butterfly (Danaus plexippus) or the Western Honeybee (Apis melifera) and the pollinators on which they feed.  Click here for more.  Order these wonderful stamps here.
