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

September- Aster

The Aster means, "star" in Latin. Asters are the birth flower for September and the herb goddess Venus. Ancient people believed that the odor of the leaves of the aster when burnt drove away serpents. Asters were laid on the graves of French soldiers to symbolize the wish that things had turned out differently. One myth tells that the asters were created from stardust when Virgo looked down from the heavens and wept.

Asters colors means afterthought or a wish that things were different -- except in china where the color signifies fidelity.
