PROGRAMS & EVENTS

Carmel Valley Garden Club meetings are held the second Thursday of the month at Carmel Valley Community Youth Center, 28 Ford Road. The social hour begins at 6:45pm and the program at 7:30pm. We also have three social events: the holiday party, the Valentine Potluck and our annual June Picnic. Our major event, the Annual Garden Show, is typically held each year the first weekend in May at Hidden Valley, 104 W. Carmel Valley Road.

Each spring we sponsor a field trip. We often arrange a member-only tour featuring a few members’ gardens. Dates for these events will be posted when details are available. Our bi-annual cleanup days at Rosie’s Garden on Esquiline Road—one in the fall, the other in the spring—are announced in the newsletter.
