The Point Loma Garden Club hosts local, national and international speakers at each meeting including member-provided refreshments and brunch. Meetings are held at the Portuguese Hall, a full-service community meeting and event space.


Educational, entertaining and hands-on workshops are held throughout the year. Occasionally a small fee is charged to cover materials expenses.

Annual Plant Sale
