 President's Message

 

Welcome to the Placerville Garden Club! It is my honor to serve as the club’s first president and I look forward to working closely with all members to achieve the goals set forth by the club. As we move forward, 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 Board and members have lots of exciting plans as we move forward and hopefully, put COVID-19 behind us. Here’s hoping you’ll join in and offer your expertise, interest, and support! As our motto says, “Let’s Grow Together!”

Best Regards,

Diane Hernandez,

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.
