Welcome to the Placerville Garden Club. It is our honor to announce two new presidents to our club. As of July 1st, 2023, Debra Nattrass and Veronica Salter will start our new fiscal year as Co-Presidents of the Placerville Garden Club.
As we move forward, we are mindful of our founding members and what they set up for us starting in March of 2018. As has been the case from the beginning, it will be important to build our plans, activities and events on the original intent of the Placerville Garden Club, which is to provide an outlet for gardeners of all expertise to learn, share and support related garden activities that benefit the gardeners and the community.
The new Board Members have lots of exciting plans as we move forward into our upcoming year. Because of the damage done during this last winter, our meeting place at the Veteran’s Hall will not be available to us until January of 2024. In the meantime, we will continue to meet at the Placerville Library at our usual time of 10am on the second Tuesday of each month, excluding August.
We are hoping you’ll join in and offer your expertise, interest and support. As our motto says “Let’s grow together!”
Debra Nattrass and Veronica Salter

The California Golden Poppy and the Lesser Goldfinch reflect our historic Gold Country surroundings. Together they inspire us to create beauty around us and within us.
Our Motto: Let's Grow Together!
Our motto, Let's Grow Together!, helps us to strive to provide opportunities for gardeners of all expertise to learn, share and support gardening activities that benefit not only our members, but our community at large.
Since the first meeting in March 2018, our club has continued to grow. Pre
-COVID membership was 99 members. In 2021-2022 the membership sat at approximately 90 members. Today we continue to expand our community outreach, offer a variety of workshops, bring in guest speakers and organize garden visits and tours. We encourage members to volunteer and to support the goals of the Garden Cub. Membership dues enable the Club to pay for such expenses as fees for membership in the California Garden Clubs, Inc., membership in the National Garden Club and other benefits such as printing materials, this website, speakers and other expenses as needed.
Membership for the 2023-2024 season (July-June), is $30 per individual and $35 per household. Mid-year (Jan - June) is $15 and $18. To join the Club, dues may be paid by cash or check at a Garden Club meeting along with a Membership Form or you may mail the form with a check to:
