Each is a branch of a national organization started in WWI England to teach women skills needed to maintain food production while the men were away at war. Branches across the country provided education and support for people interested in agriculture and horticulture. Many branches focus on sustainability, native plants, and gardens of note. In 2014-2015, members of the national WNF&GA planted over 100,000 native plants for our 100th anniversary!
Internationally members gain information about the state of women all over the world through our affiliated organizations, CWC (Country Women’s Council USA) and ACWW (Associated Country Women of the World). We also have the opportunity for foreign travel.
The Branches have a strong history of altruistic giving. Michigan Branches have a long legacy of gifting to the Michigan 4-H Foundation as well as thousands of dollars given toward educational scholarships, local community beautification, nature preserves and horticultural therapy activities.
Each Branch fosters education for the members through speakers provided at monthly meetings, workshops and hands on gardening experience. The Division also provides education, workshops and interesting speakers at Division Council meetings, which are held 2-3 times each year. The many Branches that comprise the Michigan Division of WNF&GA are an energetic group of women and men who enjoy each other, giving back to their communities, and learning more about the activity they love: gardening!
Highlights of New York Branches are:
- Love of Gardening
- Community Civic Service
- Floral Arranging
- Judged Flower Shows
- Horticultural Therapy
- Community Beautification
In an atmosphere of friendship and cooperation, the Branches of New York promote growth in our local communities and then reach out to our nation and the world.
At monthly meetings, we address farm issues, marketing, gardening and environmental topics. We also enjoy learning crafts, new hobbies and floral arranging. Our nature based horticultural projects reach out to schools, senior facilities and the Double-H Ranch here in Upstate, New York. The Branch has a summer and winter camp experience for special needs and ill children.
We fund scholarships for college students studying forestry, agriculture, animal husbandry, horticulture and environmental concerns. Our award winning community beautification projects are started and maintained by our talented members each summer season. We have also been known to just have good wholesome fun at our flower shows, picnics, trips and outings. Our meetings are open to the public. If you are interested in a “Growth Experience”, please visit and join us.
Highlights of Ohio Branches:
Varied in interests, each branch fulfills its members’ needs and desires with programs, projects and community involvement that coincide with the purpose of the National Association: to stimulate interest in agriculture and horticulture activities and to promote the interest of Woman’s National Farm and Garden Association, Inc.
Thus when planning their year, the Ohio Branches concentrate on furthering their education in horticulture, floral design, gardening, agriculture and community service.
Ever supportive of the National Association, as well as it’s Branches, Ohio prides itself in donations to scholarships and educational programs at all levels.
A few projects of note include:
- provide (2) $500 scholarships to students pursuing field of horticulture and/or agriculture.
- installed and maintain gardens at the Putnam County Fairgrounds, YMCA
- installed a Children’s Garden at Sts Peter and Paul Grade School in Ottawa
- hold an annual spring plant sale
We welcome you to join us for the fun and friendship. We promise you’ll learn a lot along the way.
