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!
