Our Motto: "Show, Share and Tell"
The Wildflower Garden Club was founded in 1973 by Sally Karabelnikoff, Kathy Weltzin, Helen Kola, Gerry McCormick, and Dorothy Ann Zappa. The club was originally formed in order to have a neighborhood garden group in the Muldoon area. It has grown to encompass gardeners throughout the Anchorage bowl, averaging about 70 members. Above all we like to have fun together while gardening.
An active fellowship of local gardeners for nearly 50 years, the WGCA welcomes newcomers and long standing members alike, and takes interest in collaborating with other garden clubs in Anchorage and beyond. We sponsor Community Projects and Educational Grants to further this end.
The Wildflower group is organized by dedicated members of the Anchorage gardening community with an emphasis on practical gardening, workshop activities, field trips, the sharing of talents, and inspiring fellow gardeners who are simply Wild About Flowers!
To recognize its location, in 2020, the group's name was amended to become the Wildflower Garden Club of Alaska Inc. WGCA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Monthly educational meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at 10:00 a.m. from September-April unless otherwise noted. Meetings are held at the Central Lutheran Church at 1420 Cordova Street in Anchorage. Alternatively, the Zoom platform is used for distanced meetings.
To promote the art of gardening, the study of floriculture and horticulture, and to further education within our club and community.
To cooperate with other agencies and organizations in furthering the interest of conservation, civic beauty, and roadside beautification.
