1st Friday & 3rd Wednesday
Chandler Herb Garden -Our members maintain the Herb garden at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. We have planted native plants along with herbs for culinary and medical uses with the focus of inviting birds, bees and butterflies to this wonderful garden. We keep it looking beautiful for the park visitors to enjoy. Come join us and enjoy the sound of all the animals in the park while you work.
Chairperson: Debbie Gomez
In 2006, our members started a community project to educate and inspire other members and the general public through plant collections which beautify Collier Park. We continue to plant and maintain a garden with natives and waterwise plants, trees and schrubs. We enstalled a Blue Star Memorial in the garden to honor all service personnel. There are many paths to walk and benches to rest on. There is also a Children's Garden to enjoy. All RGC members are welcome to join this crew.
Chairperson: Teri Schmidt
