Come Join Us!

TFGC, a suportive member of National Garden Clubs, Inc. and the Deep South Region, educates its membership and the public about gardening and nature, floral design, and civic and environmental responsibility.

Attention Club Presidents!



     Come along and “hop on board the bus” for a road trip to TFGC’s Headquarters, Ivan Racheff House and Gardens, in Knoxville, TN.  The main event for the day will be a Holiday Celebration, THE GREENS TEA, held annually as a ways and means project for Racheff.  Lovely greenery items (wreaths, centerpieces, etc.) along with wonderful holiday baked goods will be for sale.  These items are made by the Racheff Board of Governors and members in District IV who so lovingly take care and look after our headquarters.  This is a wonderful opportunity to visit TFGC Headquarters, partake in a beautifully served tea, enjoy good fellowship, and most of all SUPPORT RACHEFF.
