Services and Affiliation

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 Awards Officer. For enquiries on affiliation email the GCA Membership Secretary or telephone Jacqui on 0424 430 844.

Every two years (in the odd years) the GCA holds a Convention at a different location in Australia. The Convention runs for about 5 days and includes the GCA AGM for that year.
In 2021 it is being held at Townsville. The Garden Clubs of Australia’s 2021 Annual General Meeting is to be held in Townsville, North Queensland 12-16 September 2021.
The thoroughness and planning by the Townsville Garden Club will make the GCA Convention an exciting and wonderful experience as the past two GCA Conventions in 2017 (Ulladulla NSW) and 2019 (Norfolk Island) have been.
Click here GCA Convention Townsville 2021 Flyer for an overview of this exciting event.
The Convention provides an opportunity for members of affiliated clubs and their friends and families to enjoy socialising and visiting many interesting attractions in and around Townsville.
Affiliated clubs can tender to organise a Convention and will receive complete support from the GCA.
