Bats are our Garden's Best Friends - Guest Speaker Francine Spears introduces us to her pet bat in connection with her excellent presentation on the important role played by bats in California and the rest of the world. Ms. Spears' pet has been with her for 13 years and can be expected to live another 19 years. Pollination is just one of the many tasks assigned by nature to bats.Click here to add text.

The vast variety of mouth-watering dishes, prepared by our members, makes it quite difficult to decide what to sample first.

75th ANNIVERSARY - 75 NEW TREES FOR LOS ANGELES
Club members continue to support the development of a Butterfly Exhibit and Monarch Butterfly Haven at the Veteran's
Gardens located on the grounds of the U.S. Veterans Administration Hospital in the city of Brentwood.
Annually during the holiday season, club members contribute gifts and cash to families supported by "Homesless Healthcare Los Angeles", an agency providing services for homesless persons with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.
The club encourages members to work at local botanical institutions as volunteers and docents.
The club improves members' knowledge through horticulture judging, sharing plants and growing tips, and presentations by subject matter experts during meetings.
The club encourages members to practice recycling, composting, organic gardening, and use of non-toxic fertilizers and pesticides.
The club supports and promotes tree planting in urban, suburban and rural settings, with emphasis on use of native trees.
Two city sponsored programs are active in Los Angeles: "Trees for a Green LA" and "Million Trees LA". The plan is to plant one million trees over the next several years. This is a partnership between the City of Los Angeles, community groups, businesses and individuals, working to-gether to plant and provide long-term stewardship
of one million tress, planted all over the city with a focus on areas that need it most. Each member of the Los Angeles Garden Club will arrange to plant at least one tree during the club's 75th Anniversary year as our contribution to "Million Trees LA".
