Grosse Pointe Garden Center

Founded in 1950 as a successor organization to The War Memorial's Garden and Grounds Committee, the Grosse Pointe Garden Center (GPGC) became its own non-profit offering education programs from its onset. The earliest programs included a forum on Dutch elm disease, a chrysanthemum show and a Christmas decoration lecture. The GPGC created the Trial Gardens in 1952 as a test plot for new bulbs and plants. In 2012 the GPGC created the Veterans Garden to redefine the former Hillside Garden at The War Memorial.
