The Mission of the Ripon Garden Club:

- to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening,

- to aid in the protection of native trees, plants, and birds,

- to improve and protect the quality of the environment through programs and action in the fields of conservation and education.

Our Garden Cl​ub is a group of interested, dynamic volunteers that are dedicated to giving back to the community through civic beautification, school enrichment, and student scholarships. 

Monthly meetings begin with an opportunity to interact with other members and guests, followed by informative speakers covering a range of topics. Refreshments are served. A brief business meeting follows the speaker.

Penny Pines

The Penny Pines Program was established in 1941 by the U.S. Forest Service to replace damaged and/or burned forest areas. A minimum donation of $68.00 purchases about 350 seedlings, which cover an acre, also known as a plantation. To date the Ripon Garden Club has purchased 239 plantations, either in honor or in memory of someone. 

Currently the Ripon Garden Club is working to save the declining butterfly population through the careful creation of a butterfly garden located in Mavis Stouffer Park, 1000 Stouffer Street, Ripon, California. Construction is complete! and it is beautiful!!
