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. We are once again offering in-person meetings as well as live-streaming on Zoom (with registration).

Meetings may also include Plant Sales, a Raffle and expert discussion of plants brought in to the Plant Forum. Do you have an interesting plant to share? If you can't bring one in person, send in a photo and requested information on our Plant Forum Page.

For more information about the Society, please see our About SCHS page.

Next Meeting: 

Thursday, August 12, 2021 at 7:00 pm PST *
In-Person at the Friendship Auditorium
& Livestream on Zoom

Gardening Tools with Jill Morganelli

of the UCLA Extension Horticulture Program


In August, the Southern California Horticultural Society will return to in-person meetings at the Friendship Auditorium in Griffith Park! No registration required to attend in person. Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide refreshments, but we will have Plant Sales and a Raffle!

Per Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, everyone 2 years of age and older must* wear a mask in all indoor public places, regardless of their vaccination status.

What does this mean for those outside of the Los Angeles area? We will continue to livestream our meetings via Zoom, so you can still join us! However, the evening's schedule has been changed (see below).

* The meeting schedule is as follows:

7:00 pm - In-Person Meeting Opens
7:10 pm - Plant Forum Livestream
7:25 pm - SCHS Announcements Livestream
7:30 pm - Lecture and Q&A Livestream

Register via zoom!
