Nehalem Bay Garden Club mission:
To cultivate the knowledge and love of gardening through educational programs and activities, to aid in the protection of the environment, native plants, and wildlife, and to support public service through garden related organizations and volunteer opportunities.

Grants are often $500 or less and larger amounts will be considered based on need and funds available. Funds will be distributed by December 10th.

Our charitable gift giving program is funded by our annual May plant sale. The Club is now in its 75th year. We meet the 4th Tuesday of the month (usually) at Calvary Bible Church, 560 Laneda Ave., Manzanita at 1:30 pm. Our next meeting is Oct 25. Meetings offer a variety of activities including speakers, demonstrations, videos, and potlucks. Additional activities include garden tours, nursery tours, and workshops. Visitors are always welcome.
