Regular Meetings

2nd Thursday of each month at 10:00 AM in the Community Center. (September through May)

The Monday following the monthly meeting, we hold a work day at one of the gardens in the city, weather permitting.


The Garden Club was organized to help beautify the community and to help preserve the endangered flora in the area.  During the year, the Garden Club will have bake and plant sales, and all proceeds are used for this purpose. New members are welcome!
