Garden Club

The Uptown Garden Club is an informal group of TRUNA gardeners who meet during the gardening season to visit gardens and to share gardening tales and tips. Members take turns hosting by providing a program and light refreshments. Membership is open to all residents of the TRUNA neighborhood, but you don't have to be a resident to come to the meetings. There is no cost to join. If you would like to be added to the club's e-mail list, go to contact us and send your name and e-mail address to the web coordinator. 
If you are interested in hosting the Uptown Garden Club, please contact us above to let us know when you can host.
