In 1998, a small group of keen gardeners met in their homes to share information. As time went by, the group formalized itself to become "The Creston Valley Garden Club" and as of 2018 grew to over 50 members.
Meetings and events are held on the last Wednesday of each month from February to November. Business meetings are kept to a minimum and members enjoy guest speakers, round table discussions, field trips and tours of members' gardens and slide shows. Meetings are usually preceded by an informal plant exchange.
With a minimal membership fee of $20/person and $25/family, supplemented with funds from plant sales and garden tours, the club has sponsored scholarships and donated to the community garden, College of the Rockies, Japanese Garden, Swan Valley and the Museum.

What's Growing On Now?
We meet on the last Wednesday of each month at the the Creston Public Library meeting room at 531 16 Ave. South.
Our next meeting will be May 3rd at 7 pm (sorry, our regular meeting time was already booked). Our presenter is Nicolas Walser talking about the seed bank There will be a plant exchange at 6:30 pm prior to the meeting
People can sign up to join the group at the meeting.
Bi-Annual Garden Tour
A volunteer team organizes our Garden Tours, featuring a selection of special gardens from around the community. A large turnout reflects the high interest in fabulous gardeners' work! This is the major fund-raiser for our club.
