The Northwood Garden Club was founded in 1937 in order to pursue, “the study and culture of flowers, together with the study of landscape gardening and the care and arrangement of flowers.” The Club became a member of the Garden Club of Georgia in 1938 and has sponsored many civic beautification projects that include the American Red Cross Atlanta headquarters, Grady Memorial Hospital, the Juvenile Detention Home of Fulton County and the Tullie Smith House at the Atlanta History Center. The Club has also served on several flower show associations and has won many awards in various Atlanta flower shows.
