(NGC) have District level equivalents. Redbud currently has chairmen and officers representing over sixty-five focus areas. From 1970 to 2019, the Redbud District presented an annual Standard Flower Show at Stone Mountain Park, Stone Mountain, GA, as part of the Yellow Daisy Festival. The 2022 Redbud Standard Flower Show was held at Callanwolde and we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the show in September 2023 at Callanwolde.

Many members of Redbud clubs hold certification as Flower Show Judges, Landscape Design Consultants, Gardening Consultants, and/or Environmental Studies Consultants. These certifications are granted by National Garden Clubs, Inc. and require course work, testing and periodic updating.

Clubs involve themselves with beautification of parks and public buildings, including schools in their areas, as well as entrances to cities, towns, and subdivisions. The landscaping projects strive to protect the environment and are a major part of The Garden Club of Georgia and NGC Projects focusing on habitats, pollinators, amphibians and wildlife. We also support The Deep South Project (community gardening). The District supports our military through the Blue Star Memorial Markers Program, holiday cards collections and distribution, and garden therapy projects.

The membership in Redbud District involves itself with youth and youth groups at schools and/or in churches. Redbud members mentor special needs gardeners and the residents of local, regional and state hospitals.

Redbud District has its own Awards Program and participates in and member clubs receive numerous awards from The Garden Club of Georgia, Deep South Garden Clubs, Inc., and National Garden Clubs. Members also serve as officers and on boards of these organizations. The District produces its own newsletter, the Redbud Reporter, and takes part in submitting article and other information for The Garden Club of Georgia publications.

Historic Preservation and GCG's annual House and Garden Pilgrimage hold special spots in the lives of Redbud District's 36 clubs and over 1,000 members.
