VCGC: Private Tour of Eden Gardens in Moorpark and April Meeting Notice

 By Sheryl Hamlin

About 30 members and guests of the Ventura County Garden Club (VCGC) met at Eden Gardens in Moorpark on a sunny, cool first Wednesday in March 2017.

Eden Gardens is a garden themed event space of about two acres that was created over a four-year period. The owners imported 900 trees, plants and birds, created waterfalls, stamped concrete walkways and many private spaces to get away and talk. Weddings, corporate functions, ceremonies of life and birthdays are just some of the events held at Eden Gardens.

Local artists produced whimsical wind vanes, ornate wrought iron and signage. The constant chatter of the birds and gurgling fountains create a perfect white noise to produce the feeling of escape to a secret garden. Lush albino peacocks roam through alleys of cages spreading their tails. Tiny lights hang from the trees and quiet music also provide intimacy.

The April tour will be at the Greenwood Daylily Gardens in Somis. RSVP now. There is a $5.50 fee for the table set up. The club needs to know how many are coming in order to make arrangements. VCGC will provide beverage. Members and guests should bring a lunch. After the lecture, there will be opportunity to visit the Greenwood retail store, featuring daylilies and iris. The retail store has very limited hours of operation, so this event is a way to see this special flower farm.

Please RSVP to Linda Wilkinson: [email protected], 805-525-2774, or Marlene Wait: [email protected], 805-368-3333.

Rain may postpone the tour/talk/shopping to another date.

VCGC was established in 1924. Please send membership inquiries to either contact previously mentioned.
