Mini AVGC History
Alta Vista Garden Club was organized and federated in 1951 with Ruby Wilkinson as its first president. The purpose of AVGC is to stimulate interest in and knowledge of the different forms of gardening, particularly our private gardens and general improvement of home grounds; aid in protection of native trees, plants and wildlife; and promote general civic improvement in the city and its environs.
From its beginnings, AVGC has given their time, knowledge and monetary contributions to enhance the Prescott area. AVGC has received several State, Regional and National awards for their work. In June of 2004, AVGC held its first biennial Prescott Garden Tour. This has become the club’s major fundraiser and has resulted in even larger contributions to the community.
