The French Broad River Garden Club Foundation (FBRGCF), located in Asheville, North Carolina, was chartered in 1927 and was admitted to the Garden Club Of America in 1930. The garden club is committed to promoting the conservation, development and intelligent use of the natural resources of North Carolina and elsewhere.
FBRGCF welcomes visitors to tour our gardens at Clem's Cabin. The gardens are managed and maintained by the club members.
French Broad River Garden Club has a limited amount of funding available to support horticultural or conservation projects/education in the community. Applications due May 1st.
"Our Vision: To encourage enjoyment of gardening, support environmental
and horticultural education and practices,
and promote conservation and sustainable use of natural resources."
French Broad River Garden Club Foundation's Glass Lantern Slide Collection can be found at UNC Asheville's Ramsey Library. These slides of native plants of the North Carolina mountain, suitable for naturalization and found within a radius of 80 miles of Asheville, were originally shown at a meeting on May 21, 1936.
