President’s Message

Welcome to the Folsom Garden Club!

Ron ByrdWe will be starting our 84th year in January as the oldest community service club in Folsom and as we do so, we continue to have a long history of contributions along the way.

We are best known for our annual garden tour the end of April when we share a number of beautiful local gardens and tell our love of gardening with the many who attend. We are also involved with beautification and garden improvements with the funding of several community projects and grants during the year.

We continue the tradition of supporting a community garden and encouraging a dozen or so gardeners to grow flowers, fruits and vegetables each season. And, of course, we encourage college students to pursue careers in gardening by awarding thousands of dollars in scholarships each spring.

Most of our club activities revolve around monthly meetings where we hear speakers share their knowledge and expertise regarding all aspects of gardening and landscaping. It’s a fun time as members talk to each other about their own gardens and as they share local gardening news.

We also visit local nurseries, residential gardens, and other sites during our “dirt gardeners” events once a month. Yes, there is something for everyone to do in the club and there’s a wealth of knowledge to be learned at whatever level you choose to participate. And be sure to use our new website where there’s plenty of information about our club.

We are active in the Sacramento River Valley District and we support California Garden Clubs, Inc.

I’m looking forward to my second year as president. I hope you will check us out and come to a meeting sometime. We always welcome new members and those interested in becoming a member.

Keep busy with gardening,

Ron Byrd, President
