What We Do
In addition to our Annual Paradise Garden Tour, which since the Camp Fire in late 2018 has shifted to an Annual Paradise Plant Sale, PGCI has several other ongoing projects and programs:
We also have literally dozens of other Club activities, in and out of meetings. Don’t miss the enjoyment of participating in any of the following; your help would be so welcome!
Benefit Drawings: Plants and garden items are given as prizes to the holders of lucky tickets at meetings. (Always looking for donated items! Bring your donation to a General Meeting to give to our Benefit Drawing Chair.)
Garden of the Month: Once Paradise gardens grow again, this committee will return to selecting a private and a commercial garden in the community to be publicized as a Garden of the Month. With the owners’ permission, a Garden-of-the-Month sign is posted on the property. Oftentimes, after the meeting, we tour the garden. To suggest a GOTM, contact our GOTM chairs at GOTM@paradisegardenclub.org.
Horticultural Displays: Members are encouraged to bring single blossoms or potted plants to be displayed at general meetings.
"Potting People" work groups: hang out with true green thumbs and improve your plant-propagation skills! The resulting plants are sold at nominal cost at many meetings and at the Plant Sale of every Annual Garden Tour. Part of Potting People, the Seed Savers group collects, saves, and exchanges seeds of locally adapted plants to share among Club members.
Telephone Committee: Each member of this committee calls a designated number of other club members to alert them to upcoming meetings and/or special events.
Other Events include potluck luncheons (at our meetings in even-numbered months); occasional group tours and shopping events; classes and demonstrations; and endless opportunities to ask gardening questions of knowledgeable people.
