Dakota Gardeners Garden Club (aka Claybusters) was founded in 1997. The club was formed by a small group that decided to start a club and base it on horticultural education.
The goal and mission of the club was to bring in the best speakers we could find and to share our own knowledge of gardening with others. Along the way, through the years, we have kept our original thoughts, but we are always open to change and new ideas. As members of Dakota Gardeners, you are the folks who make the club survive and grow.
New ideas are always welcome, so please bring any suggestions to the current board of officers. We also encourage all to get to know each other and to enjoy our club. One of the best things about gardening is the people we meet along the way. The committees are fun, the projects not too demanding, and we encourage you to get as involved as you can.
The Dakota Garden Club meets monthly to discuss planting, indoor and outdoor growing, garden design, and all things horticultural. Our meetings feature guest speakers and lots of great gardening ideas (not to mention refreshments and a healthy serving of fun).
Our members have diverse interests, but share their love of gardening and desire to hone their skills, discuss their accomplishments, and share their knowledge & experiences. We encourage similarly minded individuals to Join Us! Visitors from the Twin Cities, across the country and around the world are welcome to view our newsletter to learn valuable information that can help you make your garden exceptional. We strive to provide the best tips & tricks and a wealth of new ideas for anyone's garden. Just south of Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Dakota County is near much of the Twin Cities. We meet at South St Paul High School, in Dakota County, near Hennepin County, Ramsey County, and Washington County. St. Paul, Woodbury, Minneapolis, Richfield, Mendota, Lilydale, West St. Paul, Inver Grove Heights, Apple Valley, Eagan, Rosemount, Burnsville and Cottage Grove are all a short drive away.
