Just your pennies will help reforestation in Florida’s most damaged National and State Forests. For just $68, your club can help to purchase and plant trees in Osceola National and John Bethea State Forest which had over 11,000 acres destroyed by the Okefenokee fires in 2010 and 2011. The US Forest Service is trying to reforest 250-500 acres per year to replace trees destroyed in these fires. What better way to show F.F.G.C. and G.C.S.P.’s commitment to improving and preserving our environment. The Garden Club has a jug with the words PENNY PINES on it. Drop your pennies or loose change into the jug at each meeting. When the money accumulates to $68 the treasurer mails a check to F.F.G.C. Trees planted will be those native to the forest and area including the endangered longleaf pine.
