Our Purpose

The Garden Club of Montclair educates Members and the public in their knowledge and practice of conservation, horticulture, and the artistic use of plant material. It beautifies the Township of Montclair and the State of New Jersey. The Club sponsors and supports projects of an educational character, specifically allied to these purposes, and fosters fellowship through its work and its social activities.

The Crane House and Historic YWCA landed in 4th place in USA Today’s 10 Best Historic Home Tours, thanks to the decorating efforts of the Garden Club of Montclair. Thank you to everyone involved in keeping this beloved tradition alive. What an amazing way to end such a challenging year. Read the Montclair Local article and watch the YouTube video at the end for a virtual holiday tour.

We are in the midst of uncertain times and are committed to following the ever-changing guidelines recommended to insure the safety of our families, our neighbors and our communities.

United, our club remains dedicated to our mission to educate, beautify and foster fellowship through flowers, plants and the environment. Together, we will continue to spread the joy of nature, though our Flower and Horticulture shows, our Programs and the work we do at Avis Campbell Gardens and the Triangle Gardens of Church Street. Much of the fall may be “virtual,” but still full of wonderful visual experiences and rich programming.

Meanwhile, stay safe and enjoy your gardens, potted plants and gardening books.
