Since 1939 our members have enjoyed working together to learn about and share their knowledge of gardening and flower arranging. Through our projects we support landscape beautification and preservation throughout the City of Richmond and the Commonwealth of Virginia and advocate for a greener Virginia. We cooperate on a regular basis with several non-profits through financial support and hands-on projects like James River Association, Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens, Capital Trees, Children’s Hospital and Massey Cancer to name a few.
Our name comes from the historic Three Chopt Trail blazed by native Americans and marked with hatchet chops in trees along its path that ran from the falls of the James River in Richmond to the Shenandoah Valley. Fittingly our club designed and maintains the triangle of land at the Trail’s eastern end at the intersection of Three Chopt and Cary Street Roads.
As members of the Garden Club of Virginia, we participate in the GCV’s annual statewide Historic Garden Week every April.
We love gardens and love to work in them, we love nature and enjoy its beauty, we love to learn and share our knowledge with our communities. We care about our environment and strive to make it cleaner and greener.
