Welcome to the Southern California Horticultural Society,
where passionate gardeners meet to share ideas
and learn from each other

On the second Thursday of each month, we invite speakers to present a talk or program about their area of expertise. Currently, these virtual meetings are available live on Facebook or Zoom (with registration). Meetings also include expert discussion of plants brought in to the Plant Forum. Do you have an interesting plant to share? Send in a photo and requested information on our Plant Forum Page. For more information about the Society, please see our About SCHS page.
