GCSP - Floral Design Facebook Page

Floral Design (Flower Arranging) primarily is interested in the promotion of the art of floral design, particularly for competition in the Flower Show. The meetings focus on instructions, demonstrations, and workshops by various program presenters,  with the ultimate goal of participation in the Flower Show, as well as personal enjoyment. Check the yearbook for dates of the months from Oct. through  May. Floral Design members support and are expected to participate fully in Garden Club activities, and are responsible for maintenance of the Native Plant Garden on the grounds of the  Garden Club. As a community service project, the group donates Christmas gifts to a local young women's facility, as well as donating to World Gardening and Junior Gardening programs. Several members also exhibit floral designs at the Museum of Fine Arts as part of "Art in Bloom", which has been a successful annual fund-raising event for the Museum of Fine Arts.  We welcome new members with an interest in floral design.

A newly formed union of prior circles Jungle, founded in 1929, and Daylily Circle founded in 2014, have come together as Garden Buds. We have a strong interest in horticulture, we affirmed that by establishing a committee devoted to the creation of a gardening support community within the group. This active group alternates programs with field trips for a truly hands-on gardening experience.

Horticulture members form the backbone of planning and staffing for both the fall plant sale and Florida Gardeners' outdoor portion of the Flea Market-producing a successful profusion of many beautiful plants and lovely profits as well!
