Welcome to the online home of the Alaska Rock Garden Society (ARGS) which is a chapter of the North American Rock Garden Society (NARGS). ARGS was formed to promote the art of rock gardening in Alaska. We have four formal meetings a year which includes a business meeting, snacks, a program, botany brief and a plant profile. We meet twice a year in Anchorage and twice a year in Palmer. During the other months of the year we are have plant sales and garden tours both in Anchorage and the Valley. We have built and maintain the rock garden at the Alaska Botanical Garden (ABG) in Anchorage. Our outdoor activities include hikes, seed collecting trips and workshops (see Photo Gallery).
