Welcome

The Manteca Garden Club would like to invite you to join us in accomplishing our goals and sharing our enthusiasm for gardening.

Our club, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1953, is a member of the Pacific Region, of the National Garden Clubs, Inc., and the Valley Lode District of California Garden Clubs, Inc. We also support our community through our membership in the Mayor's Committee on the Arts and the Manteca Chamber of Commerce.

Our mission is to further the education of its members and the public in the areas of gardening, horticulture, botany, landscape design, conservation of natural resources, civic beautification, garden therapy and nature environmental studies.

Please feel welcome to attend our meetings or events as a guest, or join our club now by filling out an application.


Flower of the Month

June- Roses

One of the earliest flowers know to man, symbolize love magic, hope, passion. The rose represents beauty and perfection. The name rose comes from the Latin word rosa which means red.

Nebuchadnezzar used roses to decorate his palace. They were grown for perfume oil in Persia. The Greeks associated roses with the blood of Aphrodite's beloved Adonis.

Red Roses – I love you
Pink Roses – Elegance, grace, frivolity
Yellow Roses – Friendship, joy
Peach Roses – Desire, excitement
White Roses – Innocence, secrecy
