Welcome To The Garden Club of Ramsey County Website

The Garden Club of Ramsey County (GCRC), with a membership of approximately 150, is one of the largest affiliates of the Minnesota State Horticultural Society (MSHS). Established in 1912 we are the oldest continuously operating garden club in Minnesota.

Open to all, GCRC serves the community by
  • sponsoring educational speakers at monthly meetings
  • maintaining public gardens
  • holding an annual plant sale
  • providing expert volunteers to tutor new gardeners
  • holding workshops
  • volunteering at MSHS sponsored events
Whether a resident of Ramsey County or not, an accomplished or a novice gardener, you are invited to join our community of gardeners today.


Meetings are free and open to the public.

October 20, 2014 GCRC Monthly Meeting
6:30 p.m. Business Meeting
7:00 p.m. Refreshments and Conversation
7:25 p.m. Guest Speaker, Nancy Scherer
Topic: Latin Lite: An Introduction to Plant Names

Nancy says: who uses the proper botanical names for a coleus or tomato? Not me! Who knows for sure how to pronounce Heuchera or Agastache? Again, not me. Who is an expert on plant names? Yet again, not me. We gardeners are all in the same garden bed. But come and learn how Latin plant names work, hear rules-of-thumb for pronunciation (and many names pronounced) and discover some names with interesting or funny meanings and histories. Or just look at my 100 pretty photos of flowers.

Nancy Scherer always grew stuff but never took it seriously until about 15 years ago. She became a master gardener for 5 years, but is now retired. Nancy is an  active member of the Saint Paul Garden Club and Garden Club of Ramsey County as well as one of the year-round core organizers of the Friends School plant sale. She also loves to travel and do garden photography.
