About the Rainbow Garden Club
The Rainbow Garden Club
Founded c. 1996
Promote and Share gardening knowledge
Provide social opportunities and activities for our members.
About our members:
We currently have 85 LGBT members of all ages and levels of gardening skill, ranging from the average Home Gardener to Certified Master Gardeners and even a Botanist or two, but you don't have to be into gardening to join our club. Some members join our club solely for it's fun activities and social aspects.About our meetings:
We meet on the 2nd Saturday or Sunday of every month, rain or shine, from 11am to 1pm. The location varies each month and members are notified of the location by email 7 days prior to each meeting.
Meetings typically consist of a talk by a guest speaker with in-depth knowledge on a gardening topic of interest to our members. Past topics have covered: Cacti and Succculents • Herbs and Their Uses • Native Texas Plants • Butterfly Gardening • Birds and Wildlife • Bromeliads • Bonsai • The Art of Flower Arranging.
The presentation is then followed by a pot-luck lunch and social hour.
Other popular activities include plant and seed exchanges, field trips, tours and a Holiday Luncheon Buffet held at a local restaurant in December.About Privacy:
