Membership in the Southern Garden History Society is open to individuals, families, historic sites, public gardens, or organizations interested in southern gardens and landscapes.

Membership entitles you to receive our information-filled periodical, Magnolia. Being a member also allows you to register for an annual meeting packed with educational programming, garden visits, and opportunities to meet fellow garden history enthusiasts.  Our annual meeting accepts approximately 175 registrations.  Sustainer, Patron, and Benefactor membership levels are eligible for early registration.

Your annual dues allow us to produce Magnolia, provide scholarships to our Annual Meeting, maintain our website, support conferences, present annual awards, and pursue other preservation initiatives.

Note:  Memberships are for the Southern Garden History Society fiscal year, which begins August 1st and expires July 31st annually.  The Southern Garden History Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your dues are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
