Advocacy

Speaking up — and showing up — for our native species, waters, mountains, cultural sites, and landscapes

As an early advocate for protecting the environment, the Garden Club of Virginia’s 3,400+ members have built a strong volunteer force to track legislation and recommend policy positions for members to support or oppose, including those that address climate change and coastal resiliency, clean energy, conservation and protection of natural resources, preservation of historic viewsheds, and more.

Our work is year-round, intensifying at the start of each year during the Virginia General Assembly.
