The Park City Garden Club was created in May 1988 with a mission that “through garden tours and wildflower walks we plan to educate our members and encourage the enjoyment of gardening.”
We currently have a membership of forty-five members. The club meets on the first Tuesday evening at 5:30 PM of each month from March through December. Meetings consist of educational speakers and presentations, garden tours, crafts and projects, special plantings and service project. Meetings are generally hosted by individual members at their homes and gardens and approximately twice each year our club meets in the Salt Lake Valley or surrounding areas for special site tours and field trips, particularly in the spring when cabin fever has set in and we need to see color other than white and we all long for the signs of spring, green grass, leaves and flowers.
The 2012 Meeting schedule is being finalized and should be available in late March but does include an April tulip/flower tour in downtown SLC, a May presentation by a local Arborist about proper pruning and tree care. We will again have our Autumn Harvest Feast where members use the bounty of their harvest to create a wonderful shared dinner and recipes fresh from our gardens. We always end our year in December with a holiday party and project creating wonderful fresh wreaths and swags with greens provided by the Club. Some of these wreaths are gifted to the community.
Membership is limited to 45 members due to the capacity of the homes and gardens that hosts our meetings. We do currently have a wait list for those interested in future membership. Meetings hosted in larger venues enable us to invite our wait list members and for members to bring guests.
Each member is required to attend a minimum of three meetings per year and to participate in a community service project of a minimum of 2 hours.
