About The Garden Club At Palm Coast

The Garden Club at Palm Coast, established in 1975, was one of the first organizations in Palm Coast. It is a non-profit organization which promotes the love of gardening, floral and landscape design and aims to educate members and those in the community to participate in environmental affairs. There are 2 Guilds within the club. The Arrangers’ Guild which holds design workshops featuring unique styles of floral design, and the Propagation Guild which focuses on sharing knowledge of propagation techniques. Many of the plants offered at the plant sale at the Spring Festival are propagated by club members. The club recently established a Jr. Garden Club at Belle Terre and Rymfire Elementary schools to teach children the fundamentals of gardening.
Some other programs include the Selection of the Month which designates a residential home in Flagler County with outstanding landscaping; the Scholarship Program which awards scholarships to Flagler County high school seniors who pursue a career in agriculture, horticulture or environmental sciences and summer scholarships to Flagler County Youth to attend the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs’ Camp Wekiva; and Plants for Pleasure which provides festively wrapped potted plants to those in nursing homes, hospice and shut-ins in the community.
