May 14th & May 15th  (hours listed below)   NOTE: This is a date change

    The Vista Garden Club is a group of approximately 100 men and women devoted to gardening in the North San Diego County (Vista) California area.  The Club has been in existence since 1930 and through the years has been a focal point for local experts, professionals, and hobbyists to exchange information about the love of gardening.  Our knowledge, enthusiasm, and enjoyment are evidenced by the public services we perform. 

     Visitors are welcome to attend our meetings the first Friday of every month, (excluding May, July, August, and November) at the Gloria McClellan Senior Center (1400 Vale Terrace Dr., Vista) and participate in our fingertip luncheon.  The first weekend in May is our Flower Show/Boutique/Plant Sale, members attend a potluck in August, and our Fall Fundraiser in November.

On November 5, 2021, 111 members and guests enjoyed time together at our Fall Fundraiser luncheon.  Members designed table arrangements that were unbelievably beautiful! The live and silent auctions had amazing hand crafted items donated by members and friends. There were so many wonderful raffle items that it was difficult to choose where to put your tickets.
