Sow Seeds for Scholarships

Desert Horticultural is Nurturing Students with Wildflowers

The Desert Horticultural Society of Coachella Valley is proud of our Scholarship Program. Our two annual events — The Garden Tour in the Spring and Garden Community Day in the Fall — act as our primary fundraising events.

We also promote our mission of supporting native habitat in the Coachella Valley by selling these wildflower seed packets.

If you’re on this page, you probably have a seed pack already. This is where you can learn about what’s in the packet and how to sow these seeds. Thank you for purchasing a seed packet to help local students get a formal education in a landscape-related field.
