Upcoming events

The SFGC was founded in 1926 by a group of civic-minded people who wanted to make the city more beautiful. In its 91 years of existence, the Club has far exceeded this modest goal.

This year the Club has embarked upon a restoration program of the Alice Eastwood Legacy Garden in the Botanical Garden. Our "Land of Flowers" Event in April raised funds to restore this garden for generations to come. Last year, also in Golden Gate Park, the Club planted 90 trees in commemoration of its 90th Anniversary. The restoration of the unique Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park may be the Club's most recognizable accomplishment; but many students at both U.C. Berkeley and City College have benefited from the prizes and scholarships awarded for excellence in landscape design, floristry and horticulture. The Club also has supported vegetable gardens for the homeless, tree planting in low-income neighborhoods and gardening education programs in the schools.

A hallmark of this dynamic organization is its ability to adapt with the times and offer help where it is most needed.


FUNDRAISING

 The Club has a long history of raising   funds to achieve its mission. In the past   eight years the Club has raised over   $750,000 to beautify the City and to   educate future gardeners. After storms   ravaged the Conservatory of Flowers     the Club raised over $500,000 for its   restoration. Our members roll up their   sleeves and open their hearts to give   back to the City we love.

BEAUTIFICATION

 We treasure our jewel of a city. Our   beautification projects have extended   from Golden Gate Park to Telegraph   Hill to Mission Dolores. The re-opening   of the Conservatory of Flowers in 2003   represented the culmination of the   Club's herculean efforts to restore and   preserve this exquisite structure. The   Club also dedicated the magnificent   glass lily art installation to the   Conservatory. 

MEMBER ACTIVITIES

 Our members enjoy a wide variety of   activities focused on horticulture and   floral arranging. We have monthly   programs with a variety of presenters,   such as well-known florists,   landscapers, and botanists. Our   members enjoy organized trips, floral   workshops, and unique docent tours of   nurseries, gardens and museums.

Celebrate all that SFGC has accomplished over the past 90 years by making your donation.
