The purpose of the Del Mar Garden Club is to stimulate the knowledge and love of gardening and to contribute to the beautification of the community.
The Del Mar Garden Club was formed in September 1988 by Marnie Mahoney.
Her original letter to interested friends read:
“Your response to the idea of a garden group in Del Mar has been most enthusiastic, and listed below are our members so far… Bette Coates, Jill Coughlin, Connie Geritz, Peg Hawkins, Rosanne Holliday, Karen Lockwood, Ginny Melvin, Sue Nutter, Suzy Rau, Marian Staver, Pat Stroud, Linda Teague – Lots of talent here! Durning the summer months I shall continue to research how a worthwhile group should operate, and I will hopefully be able to organize and schedule some interesting meetings and field trips for the fall and following months. We will not meet during the summers. As fall approaches, I will contact you for our first organizational meeting when we must decide on a few necessary particulars.
My idea is to keep it simple, informative and fun. – Marnie”
