Mission Statement   The New Hampshire Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc. provides education, resources and statewide networking opportunities for its members to promote the love of gardening, floral design, civic beautification and environmental responsibility.

State meetings consist of an Annual Meeting in the spring and a Semi-annual Meeting in the fall.
Awards are presented at these meetings.

The Lilac Letter is NHFGC's newsletter.
It is published four times a year and e-mailed (or mailed) to all Federation members.
