The Del Mar Garden Club (DMGC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with 39 active members who have planted and maintain six public gardens in Del Mar. The club also helps to educate and inspire locals through its public outreach programs several times per year. Simply put, we plant and labor to add more beauty to our beautiful town!

The six DMGC gardens are located in front of the Post Office on 15th St., in front of the Library; “Crest Rim Park” on Crest Rd.; the 15th St. medians; the Community Building frontage; and the “Bill Teague Garden” just east of the Beach Safety Center. These six gardens were planted by and are maintained weekly by the active members. In addition, the club has beautified and continues to beautify storefronts along Camino Del Mar, with thanks to the Del Mar Foundation for a grant for that specific purpose. The club purchases the plant materials, organic soils and amendments, and mulches. The club supplies the funds for materials and supplies, and the active members supply the labor. It really is a labor of love!

The annual dues paid by each member cannot possibly cover all the club’s expenses, so we are reaching out to the community in hopes that you will consider making a contribution if you appreciate our hard work. Your contribution is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Donations may be sent to Del Mar Garden Club, PO Box 2832, Del Mar, CA 92014

DMGC has also joined the #GivingThursday movement, taking place this year on Tuesday, Nov. 27.
