2021-2022 Officers

Dos Valles Garden Club CGCI


The Board of Directors is comprised of the executive board and the club's chairmen.    They meet monthly, discuss all pertinent matters that come to the attention of the president, and make recommendations that are voted on by the members.

Our members are a friendly bunch of men and women who enjoy each other's company and like to indulge in gardening activities of all sorts.  Some of our favorite things to do are propagation workshops, grow the new plants and then hold a plant sale along with a seed swap or bulb exchange for the community.


Other times we just like to have fun.  Shown below, we are participating in Valley Center Western Days doing the March of Tines (aka rakes).  We also have "Out and About" trips to local gardens, nurseries, museums, libraries, etc.

Gardening Expertise is plentiful from our many knowledgeable members.   Masters Gardeners, Gardening Consultants, Flower Show Judges and experts in many aspects of gardening are available to encourage members and help them with their gardening challenges.


Membership meetings are held September - June at St. Stephen Meeting Hall 

31020 Cole Grade Road, Valley Center. The usual agenda is discussion of club business, horticultural tips, sharing and critiquing different types of floral designs, 

a program featuring a knowledgeable speaker on a popular gardening subject, a plant sale, and refreshments. 

Visitors welcome to attend our meetings, and membership is open to everyone.
