We have regular meetings on the third Tuesday of each month. The club hosts speakers with a variety of specialties from floral design to writing garden-themed “who done it” novels. We also conduct hands-on workshops where you can create show stopping wreaths to dried flower note cards. We invite you to take a look.
Due to the coronavirus, we are currently meeting via Zoom and sometimes in person for outdoor adventures.
Our program year runs from September to June - scroll through to see what we are doing for the coming months.
