We're delighted you've visited this website, and we invite our members to join us at one of our quarterly meetings or other upcoming events. Although we were named the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club in 1926 and were formed to beautify the community we have evolved to be much more than our original purpose. We are located in the heart of historic Rancho Santa Fe and we are involved in all things Rancho. We're a friendly and dynamic group and we welcome those who would like to get involved in our community. We are one of a very small group of Garden Club's who own their own facility. Our beautiful clubhouse is over 8,000 square feet and has a capacity of 300 for lectures, and concerts or up to 250 for dining, weddings and banquets.

Rancho Santa Fe Association’s plan to buy Garden Club
By President Roxana Foxx, RSF Association board
At the RSF Association’s March 21 meeting, the board decided to begin the formal process of moving forward with the proposed purchase of the RSF Garden Club property. Since I joined the board almost three years ago, we have been working with representatives of the Garden Club board to explore any and all options to protect this valuable community resource.
The operating challenges that face many nonprofit volunteer boards are exacerbated at the Garden Club due to the size and scope of the facility under management. With an 80 percent drop in membership from a peak of 1,500, and the ever-increasing costs of maintaining the building, maintaining the Garden Club as a viable entity has become a burden, especially considering that the vast majority of the use of the facilities is by non-Garden Club community groups. To their credit, for all of these years, the Garden Club volunteers have maintained these facilities for our benefit.
The Garden Club board and the Association board have agreed on a new operating structure that will provide for the continued use by the Garden Club to hold their events and meetings while the Association takes over the operating responsibility. The facilities will be owned by the Association and will continue to be available to all Covenant community groups and Covenant members to hold family events. All of the proceeds from the acquisition of the property will be held as an endowment at the RSF Foundation for the benefit of the Covenant community.
On April 5, the Association will be mailing ballots to all registered voters of the Association for an advisory vote on the purchase. That ballot will include detailed information outlining the proposal, which will also be available on our website at rsfassociation.org. Additionally, the RSF Review carried a very informative article about the purchase on the front page of its March 28 issue (and the story can be read on the Review’s web site at www.rsfreview.com). Your Association board encourages you to support the acquisition of this historic community asset. Please call Pete Smith at the Association office with any questions.
At the April 4 meeting, the Association board will be discussing the proposed Covenant modification which changes the zoning on the Garden Club property to provide for Association ownership. During that agenda item the board will be available to answer questions.
I encourage everyone to take a look at the proposal and let us know what you think. You may also communicate with the board by email through the Association office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
