The Neighborhood Garden Club of Atlanta, Georgia, was formed in 1931 to "develop the knowledge and love of gardening among amateurs; to aid in the protection of native trees and plants throughout the State of Georgia; to encourage civic planting and other related activities as the members may determine." The club is governed by officers elected by members, such as president, vice-president, and treasurer. The club is a member of The Garden Club of Georgia Inc. and the Federation of Women's Clubs of Georgia. The club has actively participated in flower shows and garden club conventions. Since 1937, the club's ongoing civic project has been the beautification of a section of parkway at the intersection of Peachtree Battle Avenue and Peachtree Road, which includes a veterans' monument erected in 1935 by the Old Guard of Atlanta. The club has also supported many organizations such as the American Red Cross, Grady Memorial Hospital, and the Milledgeville Hospital Garden Therapy Program.
