Welcome To The Garden Club of Ramsey County Website

The Garden Club of Ramsey County (GCRC), with a membership of approximately 150, is one of the largest affiliates of the Minnesota State Horticultural Society (MSHS). Established in 1912 we are the oldest continuously operating garden club in Minnesota.

Open to all, GCRC serves the community by
  • sponsoring educational speakers at monthly meetings
  • maintaining public gardens
  • holding an annual plant sale
  • providing expert volunteers to tutor new gardeners
  • holding workshops
  • volunteering at MSHS sponsored events
Whether a resident of Ramsey County or not, an accomplished or a novice gardener, you are invited to join our community of gardeners today.

Gerten’s orders must be received by April 1. Members may also order Gerten’s Plant Cards. Our club receives 15 percent of the sale of plant cards, which can be used to purchase living plants, trees, shrubs or Christmas greenery at any time.
