The Natomas Garden and Arts Club, Inc. (NGAC) is a nonprofit public benefit
corporation formed by residents of Natomas. It was incorporated on July
1, 2019. The Club meets on the last Tuesday of each month at the South
Natomas Community Center.
The Mission of the Club is to foster and promote the artistic and gardening
talents of our community and to increase both the independence and
inter-connectedness of the residents. It is the purpose of the Club to
coordinate and support the efforts and resources of the Community to
create gardens and artworks that will inspire, educate and nourish.
Gardening goals of the Club include supporting spaces for gardening and artistic
pursuits, creating an organized, planned community garden, and promoting
a happier and more beautiful community.
Artistic goals include supporting and promoting the creation, study and
enjoyment of the arts, such as painting, photography, ceramics, weaving,
architecture, woodwork, metal work, mosaics, floral design, related
arts and crafts, music and the written and spoken word.
The Club cooperates with civic planning and historic groups, schools, libraries, galleries, plant nurseries, and other groups that have similar goals. In the past
year, the Club has helped create a Butterfly Garden at Garden Valley
Elementary School in Natomas, participated in the Chalk-It-Up sidewalk art show in
Downtown Sacramento, painted a mural for the new Hilton Garden Inn in
Natomas, worked with the Tree Foundation to plant shade trees in the community, donated hundreds of pounds of produce grown by Club members at the Los Ninos
Community Garden, and hosted free Make n’ Take Holiday Crafts events.
For 2020, the Club will continue to work with in these ventures, but has plans to expand with speakers and more community projects.
