The Austin Area Garden Council (AAGC) is proud of its partnership with the City of Austin/PARD and the Zilker Botanical Garden Conservancy. Since 1955, AAGC and its member clubs have been a major partner in caring for and caring about Zilker Botanical Garden. Today, AAGC is composed of 30 affiliated garden clubs with approximately 1,500 members. Each club’s monthly meetings feature speakers on a wide range of topics including specific plants, gardening techniques, and the use of plants in arts and crafts projects.

AAGC club members “dig in” as volunteers and work with the City and Conservancy to plant, weed, and re-create garden beds. Many clubs also offer member-only field trips, study groups, and other service opportunities. You can view our recent reports on the thousands of volunteer hours our members have dedicated to either cultivating and maintaining Zilker’s many gardens or providing educational programs.
