Ripon Garden Club

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 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 Cl​ub 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.

American Legion Hall, 206 Stockton Ave. Ripon, CA. 95366

Unless otherwise noted

Guests may attend for free.
