Membership (Affiliation) to The Garden Clubs of Australia Inc is available to any garden club or gardening oriented organisation. There are many benefits for affiliated clubs including a listing on the “Find a Club” pages on this site, and the right to advertise your event on the “Diary Dates” page.
The Garden Clubs of Australia Inc (GCA) is an umbrella organisation established to provide encouragement and support for the many autonomous local garden clubs functioning throughout Australia. A significant part of that support is the provision of affordable insurance at a national level which otherwise local clubs would find prohibitive.
Over 700 clubs are affiliated with the GCA and many community gardens are included. The majority of affiliates are Garden Clubs formed by people with a love of gardening, principally their own gardens, to share and further their experience. In recent years, community gardens have also joined in numbers, because of the insurance available.
The GCA provides help and assistance in setting up and the running of a club if required, as well as education. For further information and enquiries email the GCA Secretary. For enquiries on affiliation email the GCA Membership Secretary or telephone Deidre on 0407 268 163.
