Welcome to the Garden Club of Sun City
Do you have a love of gardening or a passion for beautiful roses? How about a desire to grow your own fresh and healthy vegetables for your own table or to share with others? If the answer to any of these is yes, then we invite you to become acquainted with our Club.
Gardening is our passion and we offer a hobby, a social and a philanthropic organization devoted to successful gardening in our lower Sonoran desert environment. Member interests are wide and varied, from raising fruit and vegetables to flower and rose gardening and to xeriscape practices using succulents and drought-resistant plants. We use our skills at home and in two common, neighborhood gardens of Sun City.
As an organization, our goals are to:
* Acquaint and educate our members in local gardening techniques
* Enjoy the benefits of gardening and the camaraderie of other gardeners
* Encourage active participation in the civic and social affairs of Sun City
* Contribute to our community through philanthropic endeavors
* Have fun!
We help our members learn successful gardening techniques unique to our local Arizona environment. We offer tips on planting, pruning, fertilizing, soil preparation, pollination and planting schedules. Our meetings feature guest speakers, discussions of our tours, activities and social schedule, and a time for meeting like-minded neighbors. Our guest speakers help educate us, our tours inform us and expose us to alternative gardening options and techniques. Our members are always ready and willing to share their experiences.
Membership is open to all members of the Recreation Centers of Sun City.
Meetings are held September through May the first Tuesday of the month at 9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. in the East Auditorium of the Sundial Center. Come early at 8:30 for social time & refreshments.
