Events

The Men’s and Women’s Garden Club of Minneapolis has events throughout the year. Below is a calendar for 2017, our 75th year of existence. Speakers and Special Events are usually featured in our club newsletter The Garden Spray. A link to each month's issue is under the heading for that month. Click on it to find out more about that month’s activities. Of course, if we haven’t gotten to a particular month yet, there will be no link because the Spray has not yet been published. Use this link to find copies of the Spray for prior years going back to 1942. To read the Spray you will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader which you can download here.

Visitors are always welcome for the program. If you want to have dinner before hand, please contact the Membership Secretary at least a week before the meeting. See the Contact page for an email link to the Membership Secretary. There is a cost for dinner - currently $13.
