The Monadnock Garden Club (MGC) began on August 5, 1925 with 19 members. A month later, membership consisted of 46 local residents from six area towns: Keene, Peterborough, Marlborough, Dublin, Jaffrey and Rindge, and included two men. Dues were $2.00. The Club’s goals were to study gardens and beautify the country. The Club's first project was to raise $500 ($6,977.80 in today’s money) for the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests.
On September 14, 1928, sponsored by the North Shore Garden Club, MGC became a Member club of the GCA.
