Founded in 2003, the River Valley Garden Club (RVGC) is open to residents of Rancho Murieta, Sloughhouse, Wilton and nearby communities. RVGC is a member of California Garden Clubs, Inc. (CGCI) and, National Garden Clubs, Inc. (NGC), and qualifies as a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
We are involved in our community, performing civic beautification projects. And in celebration of Arbor Day, we planted a native Blue Oak. Additionally, we offer scholarships to community college students pursuing a career in horticulture, gardening, landscaping and related areas. We also contribute to Penny Pines (a reforestation program), and provide grants in support of worthy horticulture projects such as youth gardens at a local elementary.
Presentations at our meetings have included growing Carnivorous Plants & Bromeliads, use of fertilizers, and Koi pond building. On past tours, we visited a mushroom grower, an olive oil maker, and a Poinsettia Nursery. And in our workshops, we’ve learned Ikebana flower arranging, pruning techniques, tool sharpening, and container gardening.
