April 23 Update: At the request of El Parque de los Azulejos, we are cancelling the scheduled walk-through and presentation slated for this Thursday at 6:30 pm, and will reschedule an event later in the Fall. We apologize for this last minute change.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The PV Garden Club's mission is to beautify and protect the environment through civic planting projects and education and horticultural programs in Puerto Vallarta for the enjoyment of our residents and visitors. Here's the latest PVGC news and some upcoming events you won't want to miss.
Main Plaza Planting Now Complete
As you can see in the photo, the Garden Club has completed the planting of more than 5,000 plants in the Plaza de Armas, the main zocalo for Puerto Vallarta. This was our largest project ever and a tremendous undertaking. Thanks to all of the Garden Club volunteers who helped plant the plants, to the City of Vallarta for their critical assistance, and to all of the donors who made this effort possible. If you haven't viewed the new Plaza landscaping, make plans to drop by for a visit. We're very proud of the way everything turned out.
PV Garden Club Monthly Meeting
Election of Officers
Tuesday, April 17, 5:00 pm, Incanto
Time again to elect new officers, including a President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. The 2 year terms currently held by David Muck, Andre Latigan, Leslie Rutledge and Cole Martelli expire this month. As such, we will hold elections and ask that you join us for this important meeting. Formal adoption of a Board of Trustees will also be on the Agenda, so please plan to attend. Incanto is located at Insurgentes 109, immediately before the Rio Cuale bridge, on the south side of Vallarta.
"El Parque de los Azulejos"
Presentation and Wine Reception
Thursday, April 26, 6:00 pm, Lazaro Cardenas Park
As many of you know, an artist-led project to beautify Lazaro Cardenas Parque through the use of colorful mosaics is now well underway. Join us April 26 in the park for a glass of wine and a brief presentation on "El Parque de los Azulejos" by Nat Moraga and Nancy Page. Nat, who created the Garden Club's beautiful park benches on Francisca Rodriguez (Pier Street), is leading this wonderful project and will be available to answer questions. Donations to the project will be greatly appreciated.
