The Santa Fe Garden Club was founded in 1939. Forty-four years later, the club became a member of the prestigious Garden Club of America (GCA), a national organization with 200 member clubs.
Since its inception, the Santa Fe Garden Club’s 50 members have offered home and garden tours to raise funds to benefit community outreach projects and cover the expenses of flower and photography shows. At the first home and garden tour in 1940, members paid 25c and walked from home to home on Santa Fe’s Historic Eastside – raising a total of $37.
Behind Adobe Walls™ and Pequeño Home and Garden Tours proceeds now yield more than $20,000 annually and continue to support a variety of community projects in the areas of conservation, horticulture, flower arranging, education, and programs specifically designed for school-age children.
