The Mojave Desert is the driest desert in North America. It’s located in the Southwestern United States – mostly within southeastern California and southern Nevada. It is bordered by the Great Basin Desert to the north and the Sonoran Desert to the south and east. It is home to around 2,000 species of plants, the most iconic of which is the Joshua Tree or Yucca brevifolia. Jeff will be sharing photos from sites within Joshua Tree National Park and the Mojave National Preserve.

Welcome to one of Austin's most dynamic gardening clubs - the "go-to" club for tips, knowledge and shared expertise and experience on gardening in Central Texas. Whether you are a long-time "green thumb" used to the vagrancies of our climate and growing conditions, new to the area, or just developing an interest in gardening, you'll find The Garden Club of Austin (TGCOA) a great resource - and a fun organization.

Founded in 1953 as the Men's Garden Club of Austin, the club changed its name to the Garden Club of Austin in 2002, opening up it s membership to anyone interested in gardening. Today the club is the city's oldest and most respected garden clubs with a busy and active calendar of events.

In addition to our monthly club meetings, which include refreshments, presentations, demonstrations on gardening topics and frequently a wonderful selection of plants raffled at the end of most meetings, the club also organizes excursions, an annual flower and vegetable show, plant auction and plant sales.

The Club supports a variety of activities and related organizations, including the Austin Area Garden Council (AAGC), and the annual Zilker Garden Festival.

The Garden Club of Austin (a.k.a. Men's Garden Club of Austin) is organized and operates exclusively for charitable, scientific and educational purposes as a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization. Gifts are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
