The Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club was founded in 1926 by a small group of families to advance the gardening and landscaping of the Ranch, then just three years old. The club was incorporated as a non-profit, public benefit corporation in 1937.
Over the years, the Garden Club's purpose has expanded to include charitable horticulture and charitable conservation activities both within and outside the community of Rancho Santa Fe. The club fills many roles, including its expanding philanthropic activities for worthy non-profit organizations that serve our community and the Greater San Diego area. The club's Upscale Resale Shoppe has found new homes for countless treasures for many years, converting the generosity of the community's donations of gently used articles to funds that provide important assistance through community support activities.
The club continues its tradition of providing activities that strengthen friendships, exchange ideas, and contribute to the feeling of community in the Ranch, including Coffee in the Garden, educational lectures and annual community events.
The members are a friendly, dynamic group who welcome those who would like to get involved in the club and the community.
