The Alternative Garden Club

The Alternative Garden Club was founded in the early 1980's as an "alternative," welcoming place for members of the LGBTQA community.  Today, the club continues to function as a fun social group for LGBTQA persons and their straight allies who are interested in gardening, landscaping, and growing things.

The club meets the first Wednesday of every month at 7:30 PM in the Garden Center at the northeast corner of Sugar House Park.  Topics have ranged from new tomato varieties, to historic landscaping, to chickens and beekeeping.  Potlucks and special garden tours are also held from time to time.

Membership in the Alternative Garden Club is $25 per year, but guests are always free to come attend a meeting and see whether they might like to join.  For more information, look for the Alternative Garden Club on Facebook or send an e-mail to
