Our History

Our Members

Our Members

On October 6, 1929, 23 members established Oklahoma's second garden club. The only requirement for membership was to have a garden, no matter how small or large.

The Club's purpose was, "To increase personal knowledge of botany and to bring more gardens to Tulsa." Soon, lectures on botanical and related subjects were being presented. The first flower show was April 30, 1930, at Hilltop House, the country estate of the Club's first president, Mrs. Maud R. Mason.

Our Future

The Club has evolved from a garden study group to an active civic organization. Continuing to fulfill National Garden Clubs, Inc. (NGC) objectives, members have served in leadership roles in our own community and throughout NGC. In addition to ongoing funding of Tulsa Garden Center and Tulsa Municipal Rose Garden, the Club continues to advance education through Oklahoma State University (OSU) and Tulsa Community College (TCC) programs, by helping organize other clubs, stage flower shows, present the annual Garden Tour and by fostering conservation and roadside beautification..
