Program for the June 17, 2017 Rose Show.            

The Kamloops Garden Club was formed in February 19, 1950.

The purpose of the Club is:

- to collect and disperse information on all topics relating to plants, flowers, fruits and vegetables.

-to stimulate the knowledge and interest in horticulture.

-to promote interest in the beautification of homes and gardens in the community.

We usually meet on the 4th Wednesday of the month, at 7:00 pm, in the upper level of Heritage House, 100 Lorne St. Kamloops.       

Membership is $15. per year.  If you are interested in becoming a member, please attend a meeting and speak with an executive member.  

We maintain a membership in the BC Council of Garden Clubs.  www.bcgardenclubs.com
