About the club
Founded in 1957, The Riviera Garden Club is an association of amateur
gardeners who further their knowledge of gardening and the environment.
We have speakers on garden topics at our meetings and take tours to gardens.
The objectives of the Riviera Garden Club are to mentor youth, to
educate, increase interest in gardening, plant and bird life, conservation
of all natural resources, and the beautification of our city. We also offer a college scholarship each year to a high school senior planning to major in horticulture or environmental studies.
We are newly incporated nonprofit benefit organization.
Currently the club has about seventy members. Regular Meetings are held from September to November, and January through May, on the fourth Tuesday of each month, at 9:30am. The meeting starts with socializing at 9:30am, followed by the business meeting at 10:00am and the speaker at 11am. The regular meetings are held at the Torrance Airport General Aviation Center Meeting Room, unless tours are planned. Meetings of the board of directors are held the same months and the same time as the regular meetings, on the third Tuesday of each month. The board of directors meetings are held in membersí homes.
