Shepard Garden & Arts Center (SG&AC)

The club makes a special effort to have a yearly program dedicated to education, discovery, and just plain fun for its members. You are invited to provide suggestions to our Program Chair for lecture subjects of interest and new garden or nursery tours.
Nonmembers are welcome to attend our evening lecture meetings; however, garden tours are open only to SPPC members. The SPPC website and bi-monthly newsletters will provide details regarding lectures and direction to tours.
