ABOUT US

We are located on the Kenai Peninsula about 150 miles south of Anchorage, Alaska.

We are fortunate to have a large group of gardeners from all walks of life with diverse interests and levels of expertise. Our garden club meets monthly to share ideas, learn new gardening techniques, as well as to hear presentations about specific types of gardening. In short, we are always looking for ideas for gardening in the far north (above 60 degrees North latitude).

Gardening here can be a bit of a challenge. Most of our gardeners come from the areas around Kasilof, Kenai, Nikiski, Soldotna, and Sterling. While gardening zonal maps often show our area as being zone 4, we find this not always to be accurate.

It seems as though each of our gardens has their own micro climate. One neighbor can have frost in July while at the same time another neighbor can have temperatures in the 40 degree area.

From temperature ranges to soil types, we all have different ways to approach these problems and look for new ways to improve our gardens. As with most gardeners, we like to “push the envelope”.

We meet monthly on the second Tuesday except June, July and August. In addition to the meetings we have workshops, guest speakers, and wonderful summer garden tours. We encourage those interested in gardening to join us.
