The Gonzales Garden Club along with garden clubs across America celebrated National Garden Week, June 4 – 10, 2017, for the purpose of promoting the National Garden Clubs' objectives of beautification, gardening, education of environmental efforts and civic involvement of garden clubs. 

The week was an opportunity to encourage pride in Ascension Parish by placing plants and flower arrangements at local public facilities. To publicize the week, the Gonzales Garden Club invited Gonzales Mayor Barney Arceneaux to sign the National Garden Week Proclamation.
