Historical Context

The Rochester Civic Garden Center (originally The Garden Center of Rochester) is a non-profit horticultural education center. They have published a bulletin for 62 years. The Bulletins are a compendium of horticultural information -- extensive articles and information from the County Parks horticulturist, taxonomist, and other experts, and a snapshot of gardening life in the community since 1945. In 2007 the Bulletins were replaced with a quarterly publication of classes and the website (www.rcgc.org) with class schedule, current events, and ongoing horticultural news. In addition, RCGC publishes a monthly email newsletter and utilizes social media.

Scope of Collection

The collection is comprised of The Garden Center of Rochester and Rochester Civic Garden Center Bulletins from the years 1945 through 2007. The original Bulletins are now housed at the Local History Division of the Central Library of Rochester and Monroe County.
