Garden Visits

We have resumed our garden visits (taking safety precautions as appropriate).
If you would like to share your garden or have an idea for a field trip to a public garden or other horticultural site, please click to contact Mark Delepine.

Coffee in the Garden program


Members open their gardens for a few hours on a weekend morning. The club arranges for hot beverages and we guests are encouraged to bring tasty treats to share (anything from fresh fruit to sweet, and savory, baked goods. These informal social events provide lively discussion about plants and gardening, the sharing of tips and advice, and a generally lovely few hours in a cared for garden. And while we are in the neighborhood we often follow these events with visits to one or two nearby public gardens. If you would like to share your garden contact Mark Delepine.
