The Garden Workers

"Sun, shadows, passing hours,

Gardens, garden workers, flowers"

Established 1930

Philadelphia Committee of the Garden Club of America (PCGCA)


The PCGCA was conceived in 1964 by three Zone V Club Presidents. It was their vision that the combined talents and resources of all of its members would enable the Committee to accomplish
major projects in Philadelphia that could not easily be carried out by any single club.
