Since the founding of The Dixon Gallery and Gardens in 1976, a natural involvement has developed between the Dixon and The Memphis Garden Club. MGC members serve in a variety of volunteer capacities from board members to greenhouse potters. The club’s Fine Arts Committee is responsible for the Gallery’s bi-weekly and special events floral arrangements, including Christmas decorations.
Gifts to Dixon from the MGC include a greenhouse (1981), a gazebo (1992), and generous donations to the cutting garden and potting hub over the years. The cutting garden was dedicated in 1999 and named The Memphis Garden Club Cutting Garden in recognition of MGC’s continued support of the Dixon.
