Projects & Ongoing Activities

The NGAC’s mission is realized through our Club’s projects, engaging members of our community with a variety of garden and arts activities

Monthly Meetings (Since 2017) NGAC holds one open to the public meeting each month to inform and inspire participation in our projects and activities. Since the pandemic, the NGAC shifted meetings to a Zoom format.

Giving Tuesday 2020 (Tuesday, December 1, 2020) The NGAC goal of this campaign is to raise awareness and support for our Club’s projects, engage members of our community and generate funds necessary to continue the ongoing work.

Website and Social Media (Since 2018) Our website, is home base for the complete NGAC story. The NGAC also distributes content through our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & YouTube channels.
