Upcoming Events

Due to the continuing shelter-in-place order we are cancelling our May meeting and Coffee in the Garden events. In the meantime we encourage you to check out Joey Santore’s videos and posts on YouTube ( A self-taught botanist who has developed a large internet audience, Joey informs viewers about taxonomy, history, and fascinating facts about flora and geology. And don’t forget to share your thoughts on our Facebook page.

We also invite you to join us on social media. Most of us still have access to our gardens and possibly more time to spend in them. Gardening can provide much needed relief from worries and stress—fresh air, calming scents, a purpose to focus on. We can still have conversations, ask questions, give advice, and share photos. Find us on Facebook at Friends Who Like California Horticultural Society and share your photos of rare specimens or common everyday plants, flowers, foliage, whole beds, scary or beneficial insects, signs of plant disease, whatever you have. Ask questions, offer answers, share resources.
