The Mission Hills Garden Club

At five years old the Mission Hills Garden Club is leaving its mark in our community. The club began as an offshoot of a garden walk coordinated by a group of people associated with the Mission Hills Business Association and now has a membership of 150 members.

The Garden Walk has grown each year in popularity and proceeds. We have donated close to $50,000.00 to more than a dozen projects. Our projects this past year include: re-landscaping the tennis courts at Pioneer Park; a contribution of $20,000.00 to landscape the four corners of the Washington and Goldfinch intersection re-design project; monies for purchase of garden books through Friends of Mission Hills Library with matching funds from San Diego Public Library; monies to the Gecko Garden maintained by the students of Grant Elementary School; funding an internship at Cuyamaca College Horticultural School; and landscaping at the Derby Pendleton House.

The Mission Hills Garden Walk titled Cobble Walls and Canyon Rims takes place on May 8th from 10am to 4pm. Celebrate Mother's Day while walking through some magnificent gardens in Mission Hills. This is a rain or shine event and requires a fair amount of walking. Grab your friend, your sunscreen or umbrella, a good pair of walking shoes and a bottle of water. The walk starts at Mission Hills Nursery. You don't have to begin right at 10am; wait a while for the crowd to take off then begin.

Tickets are $15.00 in advance, $20 on the day of event and are available now at Mission Hills Nursery, 1525 Fort Stockton Drive and Moose Creek Nursery, 2442 Alpine Blvd in Alpine.
