The Grapevine Garden Club is an organization of men and women who enjoy gardening, sharing plants and having fun. Through its monthly programs, field trips, annual plant sale, scholarship program and civic beautification projects, the club promotes interest in gardening and floral design. We offer a common ground to build lasting friendships and to learn more about gardening, wildlife, conservation and the environment.
The club meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Grapevine Convention Center, 1209 South Main Street, Grapevine, Texas. Social time begins at 9:30 a.m. and the program begins at 10:00 a.m. We do not meet in June, July or August. Guests and visitors are welcome.
