The Orinda Garden Club has been taking advantage of the wonderful weather this late summer/early fall and has spent a lot of time exploring the outdoors. In keeping with the OGC’s 2019 theme of “Close to Home,” most of our wanderings have been nearby.
At the October 24, 2019 meeting the members will be voting on two motions concerning OGC's involvement in the Miner Road Bridge Beautification Project.
