Historical Note

The Rainbow Garden Club is an LGBT organization devoted to broadening member's knowledge about plants, gardening and landscape design. The Club was founded in 1996 in San Antonio, Texas. Meetings usually take place on Saturday or Sunday at 11:00 am on the second or third weekend of each month and are held in members' homes, but are occasionally held at other locations of interest, such as the San Antonio Botanical Gardens or The Antique Rose Emporium. Each meeting consists of a brief review of club business, a presentation by a guest speaker on various garden related topics, followed by a pot luck lunch, where each member brings a covered dish to share with the group.

Rainbow Garden Club also organizes field trips to points of interest outside of San Antonio, such as The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin, or Peckerwood Gardens in Hempstead, Texas. Each meeting consists of a brief review of club business, a presentation by a guest speaker on various garden related topics, followed by a pot luck lunch, where each member brings a covered dish to share with the group.
