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”.

 

Thanks,

Ingrid

Moton Elementary Garden Project Update
On Thursday, March 13 members of the Brooksville Garden Club had another gardening session with kindergarten classes at Moton Elementary School. This is an on-going 5 year project during which time the children will learn how to plant, mulch, seed and fertilize their outdoor gardens. The garden they planted is doing excellent.

Mr. Wynn instructed the kids on the how-tos ofplanting seeds right in the ground instead of planting seedlings
Mr. Rich worked with the students on planting their seeds and then gave some helpful tips when it comes to taking care of the garden.
The kids are always excited to talk about how their gardens are growing
Then the children lined up and went back to their normal class
All the children's plants that they planted are looking very healthy and even blooming.
