We feature popular guest speakers at each monthly meeting of the garden club. Our regular meetings are held on the second Friday of the month, September – May, at 9:30 am in Laguna Presbyterian Church, Tankersley Hall, 415 Forest Avenue. The entrance to the hall is on Second Street midway between Forest Avenue and Mermaid Street.
All members are encouraged to attend. And, individuals who are interested in joining the club are welcome to come to a regular meeting not only to hear guest speakers but also to chat with members, have refreshments, hear club business and buy plants and garden items.
