Gardening in Harmony with Nature


2020 marks our 75th anniversary!

Since 1945, our members have shared information about successfully raising vegetables and ornamentals without using harsh fertilizers and toxic pesticides that that harm the soil and disturb the ecological balance.

Monthly meetings are held the second Monday of each month (except December) at the Zilker Botanical Gardens at 6:30 P.M. We have great speakers each month. Visitors are welcome but if you do consider joining, please visit our Membership Page.

The club's philosophy is that human and animal health depends on the health of the soil that produces their food. Healthy soil, which is rich in organic matter, abounds with organisms that convert minerals in the soil into forms plants can use. The well-nourished plants growing in these soils are better able to defend themselves against attacks from insects, diseases, and other pests.

Next Meeting
