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.
Over 750 clubs are affiliated with the GCA and many community gardens are included. The majority of affiliates are Gardening organisations formed by people with a love of gardening, principally their own gardens, to share and further their experience.
Not all of the Affiliated members are Incorporated, so that is not a compulsory requirement when forming your Club or joining the GCA.
In recent years, Community Gardens have also joined in numbers, because of the excellent insurance available.
This is a significant part of our support as the provision of gardening activities for your members. This is affordable insurance at a national level which otherwise local clubs would find prohibitive to afford.
The GCA provides help and assistance in setting up and the running of a club if required, and the benefits are listed below. A wonderful GCA Convention is held every two years in different locations around Australia, the last in Norfolk (2019) and the next in Townsville in 2021 which will be a terrific chance to meet with Gardeners from all over Australia and have a wonderful holiday in a beautiful tropical setting.
For further information and enquiries email the GCA Secretary.
