Moraga Garden Club
 

About Us

about us . . .

The idea for the Moraga Garden Club was germinated by several transplanted women around a kitchen table in 1970.

A non-profit organization, MGC has been a resource for all levels of garden enthusiasts ever since. Our focus is to create and maintain visual beauty throughout Moraga and to contribute to conservation and civic participation.

MGC takes care of various areas of Town i.e. sections of the Commons, the Perennial Garden at the Hacienda de la Flores, a large triangle intersecting Rheem Blvd and Moraga Rd, the Library urn and two others on Country Club Dr. We also provide monthly floral arrangements to the Library and decorate their Christmas Critter tree with handmade ornaments. In addition, we contribute to reforestation and Arbor Day.

Our monthly general meetings feature prominent speakers who are experts in  gardening, flower arranging, composting, organic and edible landscaping, authors, photographers and more, Our themed Spring Luncheon fundraiser brings out the best in creativity and our Christmas Luncheon at Diablo Country Club— featuring a prominent floral designer—is always a super hit.

We promote and support the Moraga Garden Center, 

and McDonnell and Orchard Nurseries in Orinda.

General Meetings are held every third Thursday of the month excepting summer at the Holy Trinity Cultural Center on 1700 School Street at 9:30. They are free and open to the Public.
