The Men's Garden Club of Akron was founded in 1937 and remains one of the oldest garden clubs in America. In March 2010, it changed its name to Gardeners of Greater Akron since many members come from surrounding areas of Akron. Membership is open to men, women and youth and new members are always welcome. The club meets monthly for a dinner and program at St. George Fellowship Centre, 3204 Ridgewood Road, Akron at 5:30 p.m.
