About Us

Hot summers, cold frosty winters, diverse soils, limited rain – our Valley has it all.  Water is scarce, global warming is evident and plant disease and pests take their toll.  As devoted gardeners, we attempt to solve our gardening problems with the help of experts.  Living in a “Mediterranean-like” climate, we have many plant choices, and the SPPC helps its members with choices, culture and problem resolution.

Perennials which thrive in our Valley are numerous and there are many resources available.  Additionally, there are club projects which showcase the variety of plants in our challenging climate and provide an educational component for what grows well.

Our club is open to everyone who has an interest in gardening, enjoys lectures and tours and feels welcomed in a casual, relaxed environment.
