Local Club Information


McMinnville Garden Club

We would love to have you visit our monthly meetings!  Many of us have joined the Garden Club to meet other gardeners; learn from each other what techniques, plants and nurseries are most suited to our Willamette Valley location; hear informational speakers at our monthly meetings; work together to improve our community; take field trips to a variety of places of interest; create garden arts and crafts, and encourage gardening with our area’s youth.  In addition, we work together to host a yearly Garden Tour & Faire in late June featuring five local gardens.  The faire brings a variety of garden vendors to our downtown area for tour attendees to enjoy.  The proceeds from this event help us provide scholarships to county students and support our many community projects listed below. We meet at 9:30 am on the third Monday of the month (Sept.-June) at the Hillside “Activity Room” at the manor, 300 NW Hillside Parkway, McMinnville.  Our dues are $15 a year. Please join us!

McMinnville Garden Club Community Projects

The proceeds from our Garden Tour & Faire are reinvested within our community providing scholarships, informational programs and garden art/horticultural community projects.  We have funded public benches, hanging baskets, lamp posts, Yamhill County Historical Museum projects, the plantings at the West End of town, Third Street plantings, a Blue Star marker commemorating veterans at Evergreen Aviation Museum and given multiple scholarships to Yamhill County students studying horticulture. In addition we do community service projects such as maintaining both the Post Office and West End plantings, as well as the Public Library’s indoor plants, support the Community Garden’s Children’s area and do an annual spring cleanup of Third Street.
