Celebrating 50 years
The Bonita Valley Garden Club was founded in 1972 and has about 80 members. We are a member of National Garden Club, Inc., Pacific Region and California Garden Clubs, Inc., Palomar District.
Our aim is to keep the Bonita and South Bay area beautiful by protecting native plants and wildlife, stimulating interest in good gardening, and promoting garden club activities in keeping with our mission.
Through our fundraising efforts, we award scholarships to horticulture students at Cuyamaca College and Southwestern College. Our annual plant sale is our primary fundraiser.
