Founded over 80 years ago in beautiful Laguna Beach, California, the Laguna Beach Garden Club supports a wide variety of projects related to education in gardening, horticulture, landscape and floral design, conservation, ecology, and bird life. We make annual donations to several local public gardens and arboretums.  Saddleback College horticultural students have benefitted for several years from our scholarship program.  The downtown "Pocket Garden" on Forest Ave. was refurbished through the hard work of our members and we have committed to maintain its beauty indefinitely.

The Annual Spring Garden Tour is a public viewing of several of the loveliest gardens that Laguna Beach residents have to offer.  The tour is our most important fund-raising event and makes possible all of our environmental projects and scholarships.This year our tour will be on May 1 in Woods Cove. Save the date!

As we make our plans for the future, the members of the Laguna Beach Garden Club remain wholeheartedly committed to preserving and enhancing the natural beauty of the community we serve.  We are happy that we can make a difference.

Our regular meetings are at 9:30 the second friday of each month September through May in Tankersley Fellowship Hall of Laguna Presbyterian Church, 415 Forest Avenue.  The hall is on Second Street midway between Forest Avenue and Mermaid Street.  The entrance to the hall is across the courtyard from the sanctuary. If you are thinking about joining, please join us at our next meeting. For more information email Prdix@aol.com.

The Laguna Beach Garden Club is a 501 c 3 Charitable Organization.

Start fertilizing now to get ready to enter our Novice Rose Show at this month’s meeting.

Participants are limited to one rose each that is not a tight bud but a flower just opening and beginning to unfurl. All roses must be grown in the exhibitor’s outdoor garden.

Grooming for the show begins at 9:00 in the church’s patio. Classes judged are Hybrid Tea/Grandiflora, Floribunda, English Shrub, and Miniature. Each rose must be identified by name and class. Our speaker will be able to provide help if you have any questions.

The club will provide vases and water.
