2023 is our 31st anniversary!
Who We Are
Rainbow Garden Club of North Texas (RGC) began as a chat room on AOL back in 1992 for a group of gardeners who were looking to form a club. Since that time, we have met on the 2nd weekend of the month for over 350 meetings. RGC has a diverse membership from all over the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Everyone is welcome. Our experience ranges from Novice to Master Gardeners, most of whom happen to be gay or lesbian. Read about us in the Dallas Voice.
