Founded with 45 members in 1922 by Mrs. Livingston (Daisy) Farrand, the Ithaca Garden Club has grown in number and in fact, the Ithaca Garden Club is one of the oldest and largest garden clubs in New York State. The Club has maintained its goal of stimulating interest in gardening, floral arranging, landscaping and enhancing our community’s appreciation for the natural beauty of Ithaca. Further, our fundraising efforts have funded numerous projects for the benefit of our local community.
Members take great pleasure in learning and sharing with others as we are enriched and inspired by monthly programs given by fellow members, area experts and members of the Cornell community.
Membership in the Ithaca Garden Club is limited to 130 active members. Applicants for membership must be sponsored by an active member. Participation is the pride of membership and all members attend Club activities and serve on committees.
