Being a member of the Orlando Garden Club brings you into the largest volunteer gardening organization in the world. Each level of the garden club is a not-for-profit educational organization which works to protect and conserve our natural resources, promote civic beautification, encourage the improvement of roadsides and parks, encourage the establishment of botanical gardens, arboreta, and horticultural centers, and assist deserving students through college scholarships in related science fields of study. Through FFGC, programs such as Wekiva Youth Camp and SEEK instill in our youth the love of gardening and respect for and protection of the environment. Also, the OGC is part of the Deep South Region, which coordinates garden club efforts for our region of the U.S.
The Orlando Garden Club’s objective is to stimulate a knowledge and love of gardening, to aid in the protection of native plants and birds, and to encourage civic planting. We do this through monthly programs on these topics, field trips to related points of interest, workshops on horticulture and floral design, hands on gardening in the butterfly garden and grounds around our Garden Center, fundraising activities to fund scholarships at UCF and camperships to Wekiva Youth Camp, flower shows to highlight our horticultural and floral design skills.
The Orlando Garden Club is looking for some new members – men and women. If you’re interested in obtaining more information, give us a call. You can also attend the monthly meetings at the Orlando Garden Club. We currently have 111 members and we would love to have you join us.
