Programs and Field Trips
Our club provides education, resources, and national networking opportunities for our members. The Program committee works with the President to secure speakers that relate to our annual theme and that promote the love of gardening, floral design, civic andenvironmental responsibility. In addition, the Program committee schedules field trips to advance members' knowledge of gardening and conservation techniques throughout the area.
The programs usually begin at about 1:00pm, after the BRGC General Meeting.
