Rochester Civic Garden Center Bulletins (1945-2007)

The library’s first collection is the 62 years of Bulletins published by RCGC (originally The Garden Center of Rochester). The Bulletins are a compendium of horticultural information; extensive articles and information from the County Parks horticulturist, taxonomist and other experts; a snapshot of gardening life in our community since 1945. In 2007 the Bulletins were replaced with a quarterly publication of classes and the website ( with class schedule, current events and ongoing horticultural news. In addition, RCGC publishes a monthly email newsletter and utilizes social media. The original Bulletins are now housed at the Local History Division of the Central Library of Rochester and Monroe County.
