Co-President's Message
Poway Valley Garden Club Welcomes You!CoPresidents

We have planned a year of activities that promise fun, distraction from the ordinary and expansion of our horizon. Hence this year’s theme for the Poway Valley Garden Club and Flower Show is “Out of this World”!  
Who knows, maybe this will lead us to extraordinary ideas to grow stunning flowers and vegetables, as well as creating magnificent landscapes of all sizes? In which direction do YOU want to grow? 

Our core activities, planning and implementing healthy gardens, the Flower Show and Plants Sales, which demonstrates our creativity and craftsmanship, multiple community beautification efforts, and the support of Future Gardeners of America, will continue to be our main objective. 

We will have lectures tailored to help those who are new to gardening learn the basics of starting a garden. We will continue lectures on maintaining and improving home, school and community gardens. We are fortunate to have a number of very experienced Master Gardener members, who will be  
instrumental in assisting us with many gardening issues.
The club’s “electronic” presence, on the internet and in social media, will be expanded. For example, we have added a Facebook page for our members to encourage sharing garden experiences and networking with other members. 

We are happy to announce a photography section as an exciting addition to our nationally recognized Standard Flower Show! Our website will provide further information.
Old Poway Park gardens are looking beautiful, thanks to the club’s volunteer efforts. We will continue to establish new gardens through a close working relationship with the City of Poway.
The Youth Club will encourage students to gain knowledge from hands-on gardening. This year we are growing the Youth Club by incorporating two schools with unique experiences.
Lastly, we have started the Garden Therapy program for the young and old with special needs. As a result of the program activities
p articipants will make new friends and enjoy the fruits of the earth. 
“Out of this World” … imagine!

Garden Clubs are made up of volunteers, so what makes a volunteer?
*Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer
(and those who can do “most” join a garden club)
*Volunteers do not necessarily have the time…they just have the heart
*If you think you are too small to be effective,
have you never been in bed with a mosquito.
*Volunteers don't get paid…not because they're worthless,
but because they're priceless!
*Thank you Members for being part of Poway Valley Garden Club.

Friendship in the Garden

A Poem shared by our Member and written by our Member's Mom...

An Invitation   by Eula Sloan

Come walk within my garden,
Leave all your troubles and cares.
Your joy will make you warden
of birdsong and fragrant air.

Come walk within my garden,
where beauty and peace abound.
God's love will grant you pardon,
His grace will wrap you around.

Share your garden: invitation available here
