Grow with Us

WGGC member Sandy P.’s Curaluchi peppers

Members drive the club.

Are you interested in succulents, roses, organic gardening, winter veggies, or tomatoes? Members are free to form committees to explore common passions and learn together.

WGGC member Stephanie A.’s Wisteria

Get to know your neighbors, your micro-climate, and garden possibilities in Willow Glen.

Meet gardeners in the area, which makes it easier to split a load of compost and share tips and tricks!

The focus of our club is community, educational, and social.
