Each will be evaluated by certified Master Gardeners. The Club has 100 members living throughout the Westside. In 1953 the group was founded by homeowners new to the area in search of information about what to plant. Many of them were returning GIs who were buying their first homes through the GI Bill.
Now, more than half the members are renters and live outside of Culver City.

There will be twice daily raffles of items donated by area merchants, i.e. Anawalt Lumber, By Your Side Dance Studio, Pavilions, Pac-8 Orchids, Yamaguchi Bonsai Nursery, and Bourget Brothers Building Supplies. In addition to plants and garden items, there are Gift Cards and more.

Each day there are also two Workshops each day: “DIY Decorative Plates: Butterflies”, “Container Wars”, “Sustainable Urban Gardening” and “Eco-Friendly Gardenscapes: Creating Your Dream Yard.” The Club will have a Plant Sales table with donations from members of the community and friends of the Club.
Potted plants in a wide variety of sizes and species are the norm, plus gardening items, containers, and books. There will be both Vendors and Exhibitors offering a variety of items. The vendors include Riccardo’s Nursery in Long Beach, V & M Ceramics, La Placerita Imports and Rainforest Flora.
