The Clayton Valley Garden Club is a Non-Profit 501(C)(3) organization, formed to bring together people in our area with a common interest in gardening, and to develop that interest, make new friendships, and have fun together!
We are a dynamic group of over 90 members predominately from Clayton and Concord, California,
but welcome members from any city.
Meetings - Open to the Public
Guests are always welcome!
Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month (February - November) from 7:00 – 9:00 PM
