Celebrating 50 years of learning and service
Pineridge Garden Club History compiled by Maureen
A short summary:
The Pine Ridge Garden Club was founded in 1969 by twelve members in what was then the Village of Cottage Grove. By 1974, when Cottage Grove became a city, the club had grown to 28 members and welcomed residents from the surrounding communities of St. Paul Park and Newport. Throughout its history, the Pine Ridge Garden has dedicated itself to civic beautification, encouraging home and community gardening, and providing educational programs on topics related to horticulture and the natural environment.
From the beginning, club members have devoted their time and talent to beautifying the community. Early projects focused on working with the Village to establish and maintain plantings in various parks and playgrounds.

The Pineridge Garden Club helps and inspires our community.
Each year we serve the community by attending to a variety of gardens around the city.
