South Shore Garden Club meets the second Monday in September due to Labor Day and meets the first Monday each month in October, November, March, April, May, and June at 6:00 p.m. (No regular meetings in December, January, February, July, and August). Meetings are held at Grace Presbyterian Church, 2931 South Kinnickinnic Avenue. Meetings include dinner/social hour followed by an educational program or fun project and then the business meeting.
In December we enjoy a fundraising White Elephant holiday party for members only. During the summer months we get together for a garden walk and participate in an educational garden trip.
There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
Wisconsin Garden Club Federation promotes and shares the love of gardening. In addition to horticulture and landscapes, they offer educational opportunities to learn about floral design through classes taught by experts in their fields.

South Shore Garden Club thanks you for your support!
SSGC plants and maintains the gardens at Grace Presbyterian Church located at 2931 S. Kinnickinnic Avenue.
The club selects a public location for beautification and contributes $200 each year. In 2019, 11 trees were planted at Ellen Park in Bay View; three donated by the club and 8 donated by Milwaukee County. Covid-19 had us on hold the past few years, but we look forward to choosing a project for 2023.
A donation is made each year to the Bay View Community Center food pantry. In addition, club members bake and donate 30+ dozen cookies during the holidays.
We support our veterans! A donation is made to the Fisher House Wisconsin; a home for veterans and military families who fly in for treatment at the Milwaukee VA Medical Center.
