NEWS FLASH:

FFGC Award for The Garden Club at Palm Coast website

In April 2019 The Garden Club at Palm Coast was awarded the 2019 DePalma/Sillik Website Award from FFGC (Florida Federation of Garden Clubs) for Best Website .

This award is given in several categories, in our case Category 4, which includes Extra Large Clubs/Circles with 100+ members.

 

The President’s Theme for the 2019-2020 Club Year:

“Diversify Your Gardens”

 

The 2019-2020 garden club year is about to begin and should be an exciting one with informative speakers, plant sales, Spring Festival, and hosting the District VI meeting in October.

 

I have chosen “Diversify Your Gardens” as the theme for this garden club year as it reflects the theme of the new FFGC *) President, Al Latina,  which is “Diversity in the Garden”.

 

 

 

You can diversify your gardens by adding a variety of plants that encourages birds, butterflies, beneficial insects and wildlife. Plant diversity is not only aesthetically pleasing but leads to a healthier garden. The mixing of flowers, herbs, fruits and vegetables creates a sustainable environment. Think about adding plants that attract pollinators, like butterflies, or even a pond or a bird or bee house. Incorporating these elements result in a rich, diverse garden. And as they say “Variety is the spice of life.”

 

 

This year’s speakers will introduce us to a variety of plant families and topics which I hope you will consider blending into your garden.

 

We look forward to a fun and educational year.

Thanks,

Sue Bara
