The Utah Associated Garden Clubs
A Resource for Local Gardening
The Utah Associated Garden Clubs, Inc. are part of the National Garden Clubs, Inc., sharing its mission to provide education, resources, and networking opportunities for our members, and to promote the love of gardening, floral design, and civic and environmental responsibility. We currently have 12 member clubs in the state of Utah, with over 300 individual members.
Everyone is invited to tour the beautiful gardens of Jerry Yoneda, long-time member of the Utah Rose Society and rose show judge. Jerry has 900 roses of every variety displayed in an immaculately designed and maintained half acre of land in West point, Utah. He also has a vegetable garden and fruit trees. This is an amazing sight to behold. There will be a pot luck dinner before or after the tour.
Harvest dinner, hosted by Diane Peterson.
We will meet at Glen and Lance’s home to enjoy a potluck meal. Bring something fresh from your garden, as part of a main course, side dish, appetizer, salad, or dessert. If you don’t have a garden or anything to harvest this month, that’s all right; a dish made from store-bought fruits or vegetables will be just fine.
Tour of a member’s garden
We are invited to tour the garden of Rose Society member Anita Olesky and her husband Wally. This will be the first time that we have seen their garden. There will be a potluck dinner prior to the tour. More information will be coming.
