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.
