GBTS Community Events

OPEN TO GARDEN CLUB MEMBERS AND NON-MEMBERS

If you enjoy gardening on any scale -- from houseplants to a container on your balcony to a bed of native pollinators in your yard -- check this page from time to time to find out if there is a community event you might enjoy. Of course we will notify you about plant sales, book signings and other events offered by the members of Gardeners by the Sea, but we will also provide information about events sponsored by local nurseries and botanic gardens in the region.  NOTE: Community events are updated monthly.
