The Evergreen Garden Club (also known as the Piedmont Evergreen Garden Club) of Atlanta, Georgia, was organized in 1936 to "promote the love for gardening among the neighbors on Piedmont Road and the designated area; through study and practical experience to beautify the section in which we live." The club was governed by elected officers such as president, vice-president, and treasurer. The club supported organizations such as Grady Memorial Hospital and the Veterans Hospital on Peachtree Road, as well as beautifying and landscaping Piedmont Road between Peachtree Road and Roswell Road. The club participated in numerous flower shows, winning many awards.
