A horticulture community

California Horticultural Society has been dedicated to bringing together gardeners and garden professionals, through meetings and other events, to share their experiences since 1933.


End-of-the-Year Party! (on-line)

Monday, December 6 • 6:30 p.m.

All Cal Hort and Western Hort members invited!

  • Join all our Cal Hort and Western Hort friends for a relaxing fun evening to celebrate this past year and welcome in 2022. 
  • Fun games, a little competition, prizes and of course we will “share” virtually what ever appetizers, cocktails or deserts we are each enjoying during the on-line party.
  • The Plant Forum will turn into a sharing fest of sorts. What is your favorite plant of all times? Your best garden memory, favorite tool, favorite garden? What was special in your garden in 2021—first time for a plant to bloom? started a new section? started collecting a particular plant? Reflect and think about what you would like to celebrate or share!

Supporting Each Other

Plants do not recognize race, economic condition, or social class. Plants can take root in any spot where they can find sufficient sunlight and moisture. Appreciating and nurturing plants can reduce stress, provide food, and promote community.

Nurturing plants can be for everyone, everywhere.  Spending time around plants—gardening, spending time in a park, hiking through trees, or playing in a meadow—is good for mental health, promoting relaxation and relief from stress and worries. There are physical benefits to sunlight, fresh air, soothing scents. 

Whether you have a full garden, some house plants, or a few herbs on your windowsill, we encourage you to take time to appreciate the surroundings, smells, and textures, along with sharing your interest with others. Share photos and web links, offer horticultural help and advice, talk to young people about gardening, growing food, and the role plants play in our world. We can help shape the future for good.
