About us

A Brief History

The Garden Club at Palm Coast, Inc. was established in 1975 with its first meeting of record held on June 2, 1976.  In 1981 the Garden Club became a member of District VI, Florida Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc. Florida is in the Deep South Region of The National Garden Clubs, Inc. In 1984 the Garden Club became incorporated. We continue to meet monthly, Sept.-May, to share our knowledge and love of gardening and to serve the community with many Programs and Projects

 

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
