EGC new shed 2021

The Eugene Garden Club was organized on April 28, 1927, and became a member of the Oregon State Federation of Garden Clubs in 1929. The club was formed to stimulate the love of gardening, horticulture, and floral artistry, aid in the protection and conservation of plants, trees, and birds, and promote civic beauty and community welfare.

The Eugene Garden Club is a tax-exempt public charity under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and is organized exclusively for charitable, educational, scientific, and benevolent purposes.

Thank You

Plant Nerd Night on March 21, 2024, was well attended and a fun evening. The nurseries included Corner Store Nursery in Glenwood, Shonnard’s in Corvallis, Johnson Brothers Garden Market, Basil & Bees at Saturday Market, and garden club members. Renee led the occasion.

The speakers were interesting, and they brought lots of new plants for us, so there were plenty of raffle winners, to everyone’s delight. We are lucky to have such good local nurseries. Thank you to Sharon B., who organized everything.

Western Box Habitat Restoration around Lane County, with the Oregon Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Service

“A few weeks ago, I was driving along the Delta Ponds and spotted a Western Pond Turtle on the side of the road, thinking about crossing the highway! I was saddened as that part of the Delta Highway was so busy and dangerous to stop on, and I had to keep going. My only hope is that the turtle turned around and returned to the ponds.“
