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 Thursday 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 $15, 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.
