Reading @ the Garden Center, a Botanical Book Club



Since our first meeting in June

2019, this Council-approved

activity has filled a need for

those at the intersection of

gardening and reading.




Our motto is:

Gardening is good, more gardening is better, reading is best.



We meet on the first Monday of

the month (with a couple

exceptions) at 4:00 pm for

discussion and snacks. Our

meetings are generally hybrid,

with the in-person portion at the

Garden Center. Movie nights

(twice annually) are in-person

only.


Our meetings are free and open to the public.


Email us at: BotanicalBooksABQ@gmail.com to be put on our email list for regular updates and

reminders of upcoming discussions.
