An interest group is a group of members of Jardineros de Placitas that organizes to pursue a special interest, hobby, activity or entertainment. There are currently over 20 different interest groups. In 2011, the board adopted general guidelines for how interest groups operate. New members are invited to join interest groups, and some interest groups allow for the participation of members’ spouses or partners. Below is the current list of interest groups with links to individual group pages.
