The South Bay Community Library (Los Osos Library) Pollinator Garden was installed next to the Library parking area by our club in 2019 and has since won three first-place awards from California Garden Clubs, Inc. These awards were for Civic Development, Operation Wildflower, and Pollinator Education.
In 2020, the club installed a Fire-Safe Garden next to the Library after a fire scorched the side of the building. The club has also placed a succulent planter in front of the Los Osos Post Office to help beautify the entrance area.
The Los Osos Valley Garden Club believes in giving back to the community and the environment. Some of our charitable contributions include:
Donation of funds to SLO County Library for gardening books, Monarch Grove Elementary School Garden, Baywood Elementary School Garden, Los Osos Middle School California Native Plant Program, Morro Coast Audubon Society for native plant restoration, Sequoia National Forest for forest restoration, Friends of the San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden, Dallidet Adobe & Gardens, UC Master Gardeners-SLO, and California Rare Fruit Growers-Central Coast Chapter.
