Sharing the Joy of Gardening in Utah
The Utah Associated Garden Clubs, Inc. are part of the National Garden Clubs, Inc., sharing its mission to provide education, resources, and networking opportunities for our members, and to promote the love of gardening, floral design, and civic and environmental responsibility. We currently have 12 member clubs in the state of Utah, with over 300 individual members.

Light refreshments will be served.
