Organizational History

The Dig 'n Hope Garden Club was organized in Santa Fe, New Mexico in April 1953, by Wadette Abraham and Margaret Berry, under the sponsorship of Las Jardineras. There were fifteen charter members. The name "Dig 'n Hope" was suggested by Nell Batts. The purpose of the club was to create interest in civic beautification, increase knowledge of gardening, to study flower arrangements, and to bring beauty and happiness to the lives of all. The membership of the club held annual Christmas shows titled "The Night Before Christmas," at which they displayed decorations, arrangements, and arts and crafts. The club was officially disbanded on 4 April 2005 with a final luncheon at the Compound Restaurant.
