In 1925, Huntingdon Valley was open country with few houses and many rolling acres over which hunters frequently sought the crafty fox. While the landscape may have changed over the years, our club's purpose was and continues to be, “To increase the knowledge of horticulture and to stimulate the interest in gardening.” In April 1959, Huntingdon Valley Garden Club was honored by being elected to membership in the Garden Club of America.
Our club has a lengthy history of projects that we have continued to support over the decades. Major efforts in conservation and horticulture include: Christmas Wreath-making and maintaining the Asplundh Garden for Abington Memorial Hospital, maintaining gardens at Briar Bush Nature Center, Abington Arts Center and The Pennypack Ecological Trust, support of interns at PHS's Meadowbrook Farm and, of course, The Philadelphia Flower Show.
The Huntingdon Valley Garden Club has preserved much of its original character. Huntingdon Valley Garden Club members wealth of experience and expertise is welcomed by others and shared with fellow members. Our meetings provide a place where women of different ages can meet with friends whom they enjoy, to join in a common interest; gardening.
