The Garden Club of Virginia Journal is designed to address the interests and promote the activities of the Garden Club of Virginia and its members. Organized to enhance and strengthen communication within the GCV, the Journal keeps members informed about Garden Club of Virginia activities with a focus on the primary concerns of our organization: garden and landscape restoration, horticulture, conservation and beautification. 

The content of the Journal provides a balance of Garden Club of Virginia news and events, regular columns, club news, creative pieces, and information about GCV flower shows, including color photos of winning entries.
