2012-2013 Theme: Cooking Up Our Own Edibles
The objectives of the Club are to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening; to aid in the protection of native trees, plants and birds; and to encourage civic planting and conservation. This year’s theme is “Cooking up our own edibles."
We maintain the gardens at the Montclair Public Library, the Joaquin Miller Community Center, and the Sensory and Mediterranean Gardens at the Gardens at Lake Merritt. We also began and staff the after-school ecology club at the Joaquin Miller Elementary School. We provide scholarships for horticulture students at Merritt College and UC Berkeley, and donate to local conservation groups such as Friends of Sausal Creek.
Thank you to everyone one that helped plan and present the 2013 garden tour: the homeowner's that generously opened their gardens for us, the tour guide advertisers, and most of all to everyone that visited these special homes.
