We're the Livermore Amador Valley Garden Club (LAVGC) in the San Francisco Bay Area. Most of our members live in Dublin, Pleasanton, or Livermore. Our club's mission is to encourage interest in all phases of home gardening; promote better horticultural practices; promote civic beauty; and promote conservation of natural resources.

On this site you'll find information about LAVGC activities, events, and community service projects. You'll also find helpful information about gardening, program videos, suggestions about gardening-related places to go, and more. You don't need to know anything about gardening to join our Club. We're an enthusiastic group, always eager to share our knowledge.

Members meetings

Our Members meetings are the second Thursday of the month, September through June. In January 2023, the club is returning to in-person meetings after Zoom-only meetings during the pandemic. Visitors are welcome to attend a club meeting once before joining. Special interest groups and community service work parties meet regularly throughout the year.

Thursday October 12, 6:00 to 8:00 pm (NOTE New time; in person only/no Zoom)
