Biographical/Historical Note

The Peachtree Battle Garden Club of Atlanta, Georgia, was formed in 1943 "to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening, the study and culture of flowers, landscape gardening, protection of native trees, plants and birds, and the encouragement of civic planting." The club is organized under a constitution, by-laws, and is governed by a board of officers elected annually. The club is a member of The Garden Club of Georgia, Inc. and affiliated with several other garden associations. The club has participated in and hosted numerous flower shows winning many awards.
