Giving Back to the Community

SDGC's purpose is to promote the love of gardening, to protection and conservation of native trees, plants, and wildlife, and to work for the beautification of South Delta.

We actively maintain 3 public gardens to showcase our efforts. Members volunteer their time and plants, twice weekly. It's a friendly way to meet other members. We share our knowledge and skills while maintaining these gardens.

Each garden has a lead gardener to coordinate efforts. Join us; have fun digging in the dirt and learn as you go.

Neonicotinoid pesticides are slowly killing bees. 75% of the world's honey is now contaminated with bee-killing pesticides.

Please educate yourself and make sure you are not part of the problem.
