Welcome to The Ohio Association of Garden Clubs, Inc.

The Ohio Association of Garden Clubs was formed in March of 1930 and incorporated in 1959. We are a volunteer non-profit organization of over 2800 OAGC affiliated members in nearly 155 clubs throughout the state of Ohio and beyond. We value: preserving our natural resources for the betterment of our community, our world and ourselves; the therapeutic properties of interacting with nature; the beauty of flowers, gardens and people; and we recognize and value creativity. We are doers!

2019 Annual Convention

Are you looking for the “Bluebird of Happiness” to fly over your Rainbow?
Then you should attend the 89th Convention of the Ohio Association of Garden Clubs, Inc! It’s taking place at the Roberts Centre near Wilmington OH, July 18-20.
A surprise has “flown the coop” and we are happy to announce that on Friday, July 19 at 10:30am, Teresa and Reid Campbell will join forces to tell us about the bluebird in Ohio and how we can entice the beauties to our yards. They have worked with students, teaching them about the importance of conservation, care of our winged friends and their environment. Reid courted Teresa on bird walks and they continue to help youngsters and adults to place bluebird boxes and track those and other cavity-nesters.
The convention is open to the public, so plan to come join us. More information about other programs to be presented at the convention, such as floral designs, native plants, container gardens, the language of flowers, and more, along with registration form, can be found in our quarterly publication The Garden Path.
We are saving a seat for YOU!
