***As of October 2020, we are conducting our meetings via Zoom, with programs planned one month prior to meeting***
When we resume meeting in person, monthly meetings are held every 3rd Wednesday of the month, from September to June with presentations on gardening topics relevant to coastal gardening. Presentations begins at 11:00 am with the Meeting followed by a business meeting and a light lunch..
We meet when the weather starts to turn cool and rainy, allowing us maximum time in the garden during the warmer, drier summer growing months. Field trips to private and public gardens are available to members as well as visitors throughout the course of our "club season". Experts from Oregon State University, private enterprise, University of Oregon and others in their field of expertise present informative lectures and demonstrations on horticulture, flower arrangement and master gardening.
Our meetings are free and open to the public. The club is a non-profit organization, 501 (c) (4).
Pam Justus and her husband were involved in the Nursery industry for many years before retiring. Their farm specialized with growing Japanese Maples. When they moved to their farm in Brooks 13 years ago, they became friends with their neighbors who owned a Peony farm. Pam began working for the Peony farm part time and loved it. For many years she designed Peony bouquets and shipped them all over the world.
She will share with the club basic information on how to plant, grow, and fertilize peonies. She will discuss peony types and colors and seasonal facts of which peonies bloom early, midseason, and late. She plans to offer tips on which ones she found to be especially good for bouquets. She will also explain how to divide a peony. And the different classifications for award winning peonies.
May 22nd 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at Oregon Coast Community College South Beach, upper parking lot.
June 12th, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, you won't want to miss our annual sale. At the Seal Rock Garden Club building.

Founded in 1948, Seal Rock Garden Club is a 70 year plus community non-profit organization formed for coastal gardeners to share their knowledge of plants and to provide a social setting for individuals interested in gardening, conservation and support of community gardening projects. A housing barracks for conscientious objectors during World War II, the clubhouse originally located at Camp Angell, Waldport was purchased at auction for $306 and was moved to its' present site in Seal Rock in the 70's.
Each year members are involved in two major fund raising events, the Greens Sale in December and the Plant Sale and Flower Show in June. Our annual Christmas Greens Sale takes place in early December. Locally grown greens are crafted and designed into wreaths, swags, and table arrangements made by members. Holiday gifts, small live decorated trees and a raffle of gift items are available for purchase. Funds from the Greens Sale are used for maintaining the clubhouse and grounds.
***This event was cancelled for 2020 due to Covid***Hopefully we will be back to normal in 2021..
The Plant Sale and Flower Show in mid-June is an end of the year event with the clubhouse decorated with spring flowers and the surrounding yard full of sale plants suitable for coastal gardens. Mark your calendars for our Plant Sale and Flower Show. Gardeners start lining up early to buy plants. Sales are brisk. A portion of the funds raised go to nonprofit organizations that support gardening, education, conservation and local civic gardening projects.
***We are still planning our June, 2021 Plant Sale and Flower Show in spring if it is safe to do so.***

"Growin Coastal" is the work of members Betty Bahn and Sally Noack. This garden-wise contribution is culled from their many years of coastal gardening experience, research and education. Their presentations, "Horticultural Table Notes", at our monthly meetings guide members on practical, timely how-to measures on what to do in the garden, information on garden events, and in-depth answers to questions and whatever and anything anyone wants to talk about. "Growin' Coastal" aims to continue to offer their guidance here in written form. In this issue, we offer Sally's contribution to "Growin' Coastal" as Betty's appeared in an earlier posting.
