Who We Are and Why

We are a diverse group of local gardeners – old, young, historically women – who gather monthly, to enhance our knowledge and experience in a variety of experiences guided by the grace and fickleness of Mother Nature.

Our History

The Franklin Garden Club formed in 1953, as a Michigan Branch of the National Farm & Garden Association founded in Ambler, PA in 1914.  See:  

Since this beginning effort (photo: WWI Farmerettes) to provide women skills in agriculture and horticulture, activities have expanded regionally and globally, including “Women Feed the World” roles in conservation, productivity, engagement.  Today’s critical focus on sustainability, climate change and collaborative efforts underscores the relevance of our purpose. 


Members meet monthly (usually a Monday luncheon or field trip) to learn more about our natural world, often discovering opportunities to participate in, or donate to related projects.  Members maintain the garden at Michigan’s historic Franklin Village Offices.

All members pay nominal dues and are expected to participate in some of the activities of the Club.

Donations & Activities

We support many horticultural, environmental programs and college scholarships.
