About Us: Our Mission

Print this page  

Lakeside Garden Club is an active, fun loving group that meets once a month from September to June and is dedicated to promoting the use of plants in the landscape best suited for our dry, hot climate. Our objectives include furthering our knowledge of gardening, improving the landscape of Lakeside as a community and participating in community events.

Lakeside Garden Club, a non-profit organization, celebrated its 50th anniversary just a few years back in 2010. We were founded in 1960 by Lucy May Carender. She came to Lakeside in 1936 and was very involved in the community all her life.
