On the first Monday of each month from September-June

(2nd Monday on a national holiday), the Club meets at 7pm at Hope Lutheran Church to hear guest speakers discuss various aspects of gardening, landscaping and plant production in Gallatin Valley.

 

Past presentations have included GMOs, soil health, biological pest control, the biology of bees, and the challenges of commercial organic farming.

In summer, we arrange tours of local gardens, farms and other sites of interest. We end the year with a group holiday dinner. Guests are always welcome.
