The Society

A members-only Garden & Gun experience

A Letter from Garden & Gun’s Cofounder & CEO


Dear Friends,

Over the last sixteen 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.

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

This fall, the G&G Society Gathering will be held November 9-12, 2023 in Boca Grande, Florida. Join G&G editors, contributors, and tastemakers for this one-of-a-kind experience among friends. The unforgettable weekend will feature curated activities including brunch and boating with Barton & Gray, a fishing excursion with G&G editor in chief David DiBenedetto, and an afternoon of croquet and lunch on the lawn of Gasparilla Inn’s Mallet Club. Amongst the beauty of the Gulf Coast island, Society members will also have the opportunity to engage with special guests including Ann Marshall and Scott Blackwell of High Wire Distillery for a spirits discussion; fashion historian Caroline Rennolds Milbank for a dialogue on style, and storyteller, documentarian, and cook Von Diaz for a finale dinner with incredible food and beverage pairings. The event promises an exceptional experience for passionate G&G fans. Mark your calendar now for this exclusive members-only experience.
