The San Diego Horticultural Society sprang from modest seeds sown in 1994 by our founders Don and Dorothy Walker, Steve Brigham, Diana Goforth, Laurie Bussis, Bill and Linda Teague, Adele Snyder and Kathy Musial. Their vision was to establish a friendly group of garden enthusiasts from beginners to skilled professionals to get together and share information and the joy of gardening. Our first meeting was held at San Diego Botanic Garden (then named Quail Botanical Gardens).

We grew so quickly that in just two months we had to find a larger meeting space. SDHS now has over 1300 members, and our monthly meetings are held at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

SDHS sponsors three $1000 scholarships to students enrolled in horticultural programs at local community colleges.
