Avondale Estates Garden Club
The Avondale Estates Garden Club (AEGC) invites residents to monthly Lunch and Learn Programs featuring talks by gardening experts. Enjoy friendships, expert gardening tips (both indoor and outdoor) and conservation and ecology information presented by AEGC guest speakers. Even if you're not a gardener, but you simply love beauty and want to meet some wonderful people, the AEGC is a great place to form lasting friendships with neighbors in our wonderful community.

Founded in 1953, Avon Garden Club (AGC) continues to be a force for good within the City of Avondale Estates. Visit their website: www.avongardenclub.org.

Purpose
The club’s stated purpose is “to stimulate interest in home gardening and the beautification of our neighborhood.” A nonprofit organization, AGC devotes the overwhelming majority of its benevolences within the City on various beautification projects. The club also supports gardening and horticultural activities throughout the state.
