Welcome to the Flower City Garden Network of Rochester.

We are an entirely volunteer group of gardening educators and enthusiasts.

About once a month, we offer a talk, garden visit or guided walk in a natural area or at an arboretum.

On this website we share information about garden classes, talks and gardening events in and around Rochester NY.

See our website for a list of upcoming events, or better yet sign up for membership or for our email list so you will be the first to hear about what we are doing next. Don't forget to like us on Facebook.


Membership benefits

Free entry to our popular garden soirees and nature walks for members and a guest. The soirees are casual garden parties held at private local gardens. Members may wander around the garden at their own pace, chat with the garden owner and other FCGN members and enjoy delicious refreshments.

Programs Last year we offered four soirees, two gardening talks, a wildflower walk, a tree walk, a private tour of Linwood Gardens to see the peonies and a tour and get-together at Webster Arboretum. We participated in several plant sales and got together three times to collect and sort seeds for our January seed swap.

Discounts at local garden centers Our membership card (which will be mailed soon) will get a 5-10% discount at several garden centers. Stay tuned on our website for details.
