In Our Hearts and Memories


A Rose from our Brookville Garden Club...Rebecca "Becky" Evans left our earthly gardens this past month. We shall always remember Becky for her beautiful smile and sunny disposition. She was beloved member and will be in our hearts forever. God Bless and God speed...till we meet again.


Habitat for Humanity House

The Habitat for Humanity house at 16085 Boca Raton in Brooksville is finished and ready for dedication on Sept. 23, 2015 at 11 am. Directions to the house are as follows: Take Wiscon Rd. to California street (traveling from Brooksville) and turn left onto California. Go almost to the Powell Rd. traffic light. Look for Melborne on the right and turn. Then a quick right onto Miami. The Habitat house is two streets down on Boca Raton. Turn left on Boca Raton. It’s the last habitat house on the right. There will probably be a table set up in the driveway and a podium.

We’ll actually put the plants in the ground on Sept. 22.

Hello Everyone,

Brooksville Garden Club is a place for people to share their love of gardening and nature.  The club endeavors to expand knowledge in Florida gardening and stewardship of our environment.  To meet like-minded people, to improve our community and to preserve the natural beauty of Brooksville and its environs.  We never forget the beauty which surrounds us, needs care and tending.  We further these goals by promoting conservation of resources, educational programs, field trips, community projects and club events.

Our members actively engage in a range of projects including volunteering at Wekiva Youth Camp…maintaining the Memorial Gardens at the Heritage Museum…adopting a section of The Good Neighbor Trail…participating in the backpack program for school … the continued planting of gardens at Moton Elementary School….and finally providing plants for Habitat for Humanity homes.

Our fundraisers provide continuing money to be donated to Wekiva Youth Camp, Pasco-Hernando State College Scholarship and 100 Acre Woods.  We actively seek to sponsor campers for Wekiva each summer…campers today – environmental leaders in the future.

Unification of the club through shared responsibilities will be an important step for growth.  Through focus on our objectives of civic beautification, treasuring natural resources and sharing knowledge, we hope to bring more members “through the garden gate”.
