Admin/Biographical History In 1957, 15 men and women organized and adopted a constitution for the Venice Area Garden Club (VAGC). Men later dropped from active membership and were made honorary members. In February 1958 VAGC was admitted to the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs and introduced their annual flower show. City beautification has been a significant activity of the organization as well as the formation of junior gardening groups and scholarship programs. A Home and Garden Tour program began in 1990 and continues to be the club's major fundraising activity.
