Ripon Garden Club
The Mission of the Ripon Garden Club:
- to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening,
- to aid in the protection of native trees, plants, and birds,
- to improve and protect the quality of the environment through programs and action in the fields of conservation and education.
Our Garden Club is a group of interested, dynamic volunteers that are dedicated to giving back to the community through civic beautification, school enrichment, and student scholarships.
Monthly meetings begin with an opportunity to interact with other members and guests, followed by informative speakers covering a range of topics. Refreshments are served. A brief business meeting follows the speaker.
We meet on the first Wednesday of the month at 10:00 am, unless otherwise stated.

The Ripon Garden Club was first created in 1954 as a 501-c3 non-profit with the goal of protecting native plants and insects, to encourage civic beauty, and further educate the community about the environment. The club is led by a group of volunteers joined by a love of gardening and dedicated to giving back to the community.
Proceeds from the September Stroll support scholarships provided to graduating high school seniors and community college transfer students in pursuit of an environmental, agricultural or horticultural focused degree. Funds also support current projects such as Ripon’s downtown flower pots, Garden Therapy, school gardens and education, arbor day activities, Penny Pines and Blue Star Memorial.
BUTTERFLY GARDEN: Currently the Ripon Garden Club is working to save the declining butterfly population through the careful creation of a butterfly garden to be located in Stouffer Park. Construction is close to completion and donations to further the cause are gratefully accepted. Contact Shannon Kuhn, Ripon Garden Club, 929 Spring Creek Drive, Ripon, CA 95366, or call her 209-499-1972.
