Carmel Valley Garden Club Welcomes you to our Club

The CVGC is a nonprofit organization that promotes gardening and education about gardening in our area.  We organize various projects in our community throughout the year and make donations to local nonprofits from our Annual Garden Show proceeds to help beautify the community.

Our regular monthly meetings, which are both educational and social, are held on the 2nd Thursday each month at 6:45 p.m. at the Carmel Valley Community Youth Center on Ford Road.  Our membership and meetings are open to everyone with an interest in gardening.  We issue a monthly e-newsletter with timely tips for your gardening plus information on upcoming events.

With the Best Weather Yet for the final event of the year, 70 members gathered at the Carmel Valley Community Youth Center for a great end of year party.  First we welcomed our new Board members, Carolyn Rice, June Dawson, Dianne Woods and Ed Morrow (above left).  Then we gave out grants to 8 local nonprofits:  Carmel Valley Community Youth Center, Friends of Carmel Valley Historical Society, Carmel Valley Boy Scout Troop #127, Carmel Valley Village Improvement Committee, Rosie's Garden, Hidden Valley Music Seminars and Tularcitos Parent Teacher Organization.  Next we feasted on member provided potluck items and club provided entrees (John Brocco and Elaine Kramer on grill duty).  

Many thanks to Karolyn Stone and her team for all the hard work arranging this great event.

April 25 - Wildflower Hike with Santa Lucia Conservancy

On April 25, 22 "adventuresome" members of the club had an amazing wildflower hike down and then up Black Mountain trail in the Santa Lucia Preserve.  Following our wonderful guide, Christy Fischer, Executive Director of the Santa Lucia Conservancy, we hiked down through fields of Lupine, and numerous other flowers such as Rose Clover, Johnny Jump-up, and Clarkia, and then through more wooded area with larkspur, Chinese Houses, cut-leaved geranium, Scarlet Pimpernel, Shooting Stars, and many many more.  We couldn't have had more perfect weather, and photographers in the group had ample opportunity to get great shots to enter into the Photography contest at the Garden Show. More photos in this 2019 April Wildflower Walk album.
Kudos to Ed Dickson for arranging such a great hike.
