The Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut, Inc. is an educational, charitable non-profit organization made up of 7,210 individual members, 138 clubs and 18 affiliate clubs. It is one of thirteen charter members of the National Council of State Garden Clubs, Inc., now known as the National Garden Clubs, Inc., which was organized on May 1,1929, (two days after Connecticut's first meeting), and has had almost continuous representation on the National Board.

National Garden Clubs, Inc. is a service organization dedicated to the development of gardening, the betterment and beautification of the community and the exchange of ideas. It is the largest gardening organization in the world, comprising nearly a quarter of a million members from every state in the union as well as National and International Affiliates. It is closely unified through the eight regions under a Regional Director, who serves on the Executive Committee.

As garden clubs have grown in Connecticut, The Federation has continued its interests in Civic Development, Environmental Concerns/Conservation, Garden Therapy, Historic and Memorial or Public Gardens, Horticulture, Legislative/Government Action, Public Relations, Scholarships and Youth Activities. It sponsors Flower Show, Landscape Design, Gardening Study, and Environmental Studies Schools for the continuing education and benefit of its members. Its "News" publication, which has been in existence almost since the beginning of the Federation, publishes 10 issues each year to keep members informed of Federation activities.
