Members of the Garden Club of Stuart enjoy gardening and meet on a monthly basis from October through April. Meetings provide a venue to socialize and enjoy programs on a wide range of topics from guest speakers. Workshops (floral design, basket weaving, infusing herbs, making wreaths, etc.) and group trips (garden tours, flower shows, holiday tours, etc.) are part of our yearly activities.
We take pride in our community and implement projects which beautify the area. While maintaining Possum Long and the Treasure Coast Hospice Butterfly garden we also involve ourselves in civic activities such as the Blue Star Marker in Memorial Park and provide academic scholarships that help guide students’ interest not only in gardening, but in floral design and environmental issues. In addition, we provide youth opportunities to be educated about our environment by providing scholarships to Camp Wekiva and S.E.E.K.
