Garden & Gun

The Society

A members-only Garden & Gun experience

A Letter from the Garden & Gun President & CEO


Dear Friends,

Over the last fourteen years, we have been honored to play host to passionate readers at destinations across the South and beyond. From the hills of Northern Italy to Bermuda’s pink sands, stories have been shared and memories have been made at every turn. 

With your unparalleled enthusiasm in mind, I would like to be the first to invite you to join the Garden & Gun Society, a members-only group designed to allow our most engaged readers to experience the magazine—and the best of the South—as never before.  In addition to enjoying exclusive privileges and a direct dial to G&G’s headquarters, Society members are invited to gather annually at an exclusive family-reunion-style event.

Here’s to continued adventures with good friends!

Rebecca Wesson Darwin
Garden & Gun cofounder & CEO 


G&G Society Membership Benefits

Enjoy access to a Society concierge, your exclusive point of contact for all things Southern and a liaison to the G&G team. Society members receive priority reservations and VIP treatment at the Garden & Gun Club at the Battery Atlanta in Atlanta, Georgia, and at the Garden & Gun Club at Stitzel-Weller Distillery in Louisville, Kentucky.

Be among the first to hear about G&G events, from a race day brunch in Kentucky to a weekend escape in Bermuda. Society members receive early access to ticketing for all Garden & Gun events, many of which are known to sell out in just a few minutes. Please see upcoming G&G events here.

With each issue of G&G, Society members receive a gift inspired by the pages of the magazine, including curated goods such as our favorite bottle of bourbon, perfect entertaining accessories, or hand-crafted treats for your dog.

Once a year, a page in Garden & Gun is dedicated to honoring each Society member by name.

Gain access to our growing network of partner hotels, restaurants, and sporting locations across the country and beyond, each offering experiential benefits exclusively to G&G Society members.

Participating partners include:


Every year, Society members are invited to join us for a members-only experience at one of Garden & Gun’s favorite destinations. 

In 2019, members joined G&G editors, staff, and contributors at the beautiful Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee. Click here to view photos from the exclusive event.

In the fall of 2021, the Society Gathering took place at the newly renovated High Hampton Inn in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Throughout the event, guests enjoyed private hikes and fly fishing excursions with local guides, exceptional cuisine with wine pairings, a live performance by country star Hailey Whitters and riveting storytelling with G&G editors and special guests.
