Regular Monthly Meeting

PACIFIC PALISADES GARDEN CLUB
"Camellia Growing in Southern California"
We are delighted to welcome Tom Nuccio as our speaker for December. For many years Tom and his cousins, Julius and Joe, have managed Nuccio's Nursery in Altadena, where they grow world famous camellias and azaleas. Tom's Dad and uncle started the business in 1935 and moved to its current location in 1946. They attribute their success to hard work, love for beautiful plants, wonderful clients, as well as their location in the hills of Altadena on Chaney Trail.

The Pacific Palisades Garden Club, a nonprofit organization founded in 1944, attracts people living in the Westside communities of the Los Angeles area who enjoy gardening and also like spending time with other gardeners. Its large membership enables it to offer numerous activities unavailable to smaller garden groups.
The Club's sociable monthly meetings, open free to the public, feature speakers who present informative programs on a wide variety of garden-connected topics. Its members are regularly invited to visit local private gardens, and twice a year they can take special daylong tours via chartered bus to prominent public garden sites, garden shows, and special nurseries in outlying areas.
PPGC's Spring Garden Tour is a popular event, and the income it generates helps this charitable organization to support worthy local educational, beautification, and conservation efforts involved in some way with the plant kingdom.
