At the Holiday Island Garden Club, we are dedicated to stimulating and expanding the knowledge and love of gardening among interested gardeners in the Holiday Island area. Whether it’s your own garden or one we have adopted as a group, we gather to strengthen these goals.

We run the gamut from serious business meetings (not very often) to excursions and field trips to nearby gardens. Our speakers are extremely informative and our festivities are filled with great food, fun and fellowship.

Holiday Island Garden Club became a member of the Arkansas Federation of Garden Clubs in 2016 and thereby is an official member of the National Garden Club.
