Welcome to the Southern California Horticultural Society,
where passionate gardeners meet to share ideas
and learn from each other

On the second Thursday of each month, we invite speakers to present a talk or program about their area of expertise. Admission is free for members, children, and students with ID, and $5 for non-members. Meetings also include expert discussion of plants brought in to the Plant Forum table, and we often have Plant Raffles. Plants, used and new books and magazines are usually for sale at the meetings. For more information about the Society, please see our About SCHS page.

Next Meeting:  SPECIAL EVENT 2016 Horticulturist of the Year Award Banquet

The evening will end with a tribute to Carol's life and work as a researcher, educator and advocate for California's native plants and ecosystems.
