Join members of the Livermore-Amador Valley Garden Club as they take a walk down memory lane to celebrate their 35th anniversary.

The group was founded in 1984 by six women who loved to garden, and it has grown into an active 200-member club that serves the Tri-Valley with camaraderie, informational meetings, and by maintaining some public gardens.

The celebration will take place at the club's regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 12 at Alisal Elementary School, 1454 Santa Rita Road, and visitors are welcome. The program will feature a narrated slideshow and an exhibit that organizers say "is sure to entertain and allow us to revisit many gardening moments of the past."

Past members and officers will be honored guests that evening.

Among the club's many projects are the following:

* Sensory Garden next to the Senior Center

* Hansen Park Rose Garden

* Rose bushes in a Livermore park

* SeedShare, assembling seed packets from members' gardens to give out free to the public at libraries

* Arbor Day

* Camp Arroyo Children's Organic Garden

* Eden Garden in Livermore, which grows fresh, organic food for those in need

* Penny Pines collections to sustain national and urban forests

* Annual Plant Sale

* Garden Angels, helping members who are temporarily unable to keep up their gardens.

Monthly meetings host speakers; in October, Mark Whittman, a longtime environmental activist, will speak on "Creating Living Soil."

The club's special interest programs include edible gardening, floral design, a monthly lunch bunch, garden sharing and tomato tasting.
