The Garden Club of Alexandria

The Garden Club of Alexandria is raising funds to undertake a large civic project. We are working with a professional landscape architect and the City of Alexandria to totally renovate the garden in the historic Ramsay House. This project presents a wonderful opportunity to benefit the locals who frequently pass by the prominent location, but also, since it is the official Visitor's Center, to welcome thousands of visitors to our city evey year with a lush, sustainable, and approppriate garden.
