The Deep Dene Garden Club was formed in 1940 in Atlanta, Georgia. The club's goal was to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening, flower gardening, and flower arrangement among amateurs to aid in the protection of native trees, plants, birds, and to encourage civic beautification. The club was governed by elected leaders, such as president, vice-president, and recording secretary. The club's motto was "The groves were God's first temples," their club flower was the thistle and club colors were pink and lavender. The club's main civic project was the maintenance of Deep Dene Park, located on Ponce de Leon Avenue and designed by the Olmsted brothers.
