Los Angeles Garden Club:
Committed to help beautify Los Angeles for future generations

 

For more than 80 years, the Los Angeles Garden Club has been involved in countless, meaningful projects throughout the Los Angeles area.


In recent years, our Club members havebeen assisting "San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity" with the landscaping of the “Chestnut Homes” project in Glendale, California. Our members also volunteered in the makeover of a residential garden under the patronage of "Brush with Kindness". In 2018, we joined forces with "Taking the Reins", assisting the organization with gardening projects and helping to raise awareness and funds for their wonderful Horse & Garden Program.

The selfless kindness of our members has allowed our Club to offer its help and support wherever it is needed. However, in order to help maintain this support system to others, we need your help, please.

 

Our Club's regular monthly expenses include Meeting Room Rental, Honoraria to our wonderful Guest Speakers and delicious Goodies for our Hospitality Table. We also hold Raffles and Plant Sales, and an annual Silent Auction, containing items donated by our members.

An educational endeavor close to our heart is the Flower Show, an event that is offered to the public free of charge. But due to steadily rising costs we have not been able to offer our Flower Show on an annual basis, which is regrettable, because this event is not only educational, but serves as an inspiration to people from all walks of life. The expenses for a Flower Show are usually in the vicinity of $800 (rent for logistically ideal room/hall/facility included). Our members volunteer their labor, time and own materials during this 2-day event.


Your help and contributions in any shape or form are greatly appreciated and we thank you for your generous support.

It's a popular project with our members - Participation is approx. 85% and the donation value is usually around $800. Your support of our Club means that we can continue to help people in need.

Taking the Reins

 

In 2018, our Club partnered with Taking the Reins to help support this community-based non-profit organization in Los Angeles that serves hundreds of at-risk girls, ages 8-18, to help them excel and achieve their fullest potential in a safe and diverse environment. Thanks to the Equestrian, Urban Farm, and Animal Husbandry Programs, girls learn the value of teamwork and responsibility, in addition to valuable skills.

TTR inspires and encourages girls to self-advocate, helping them grow into future leaders. TTR also offers workshops in the arts, personal development and life skills, college preparation, and career opportunities. Partnering schools report TTR teens have higher in-class participation and school attendance, and over 80% of TTR students show increased self-confidence.
 

Our members enjoy volunteering and participating in the garden classes and will continue to do so. So far, our members have not only donated their time and expertise to TTR, but the Club has also donated money and gardening tools. The annual cost per girl is $1,100.

Please help us to continue our support for Taking the Reins - Thank you so much.
