The FWGC organized in 1926, with the expressed purpose:

to cultivate a broader knowledge of gardening, horticulture and design
to advocate for the protection of the environment
to support the Fort Worth Botanic Garden

Celebrating Arbor Day*

Celebrate Texas Arbor Day, the first Friday in November, and nominate an individual, group, organization, or government entity to receive Fort Worth Garden Club’s Mary Louise Michie Aboreal Award of Excellence. Nominees should exemplify a long-term commitment to trees through tree planting, care, stewardship, and attention to sustainability; education and awareness of the importance of trees; or other efforts that champion a better urban forest by building community partnerships or improving public policy. Projects must take place in the City of Fort Worth for its benefit.
