Jensen Beach Garden Club Meetings

 

2019-2020

 

 

      After much thought, discussion and procedures the Jensen Beach Garden Club members have voted to leave the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs . On January 15th the membership chose to to withdraw from the FFGC in order to gain greater control over our own organization. At the end of April the garden club will no longer be under the umbrella of the state organization. This was not an easy decision for the club to make but the overwhelming majority of the membership felt the negatives outweighed the benefits to our club. While the FFGC has many fine educational opportunities for most garden clubs, the members felt that these are things that we have always been able to pursue independently. We would like to thank the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs for their many awards, prizes and educational programs over the last 7 years.

 

 

2018-2019

 

Our final meeting was an appeal to all members to consider a position on the board or as a chairperson for the many committees it takes to keep our club moving forward. New members were honored and Linda Elliott was told the exciting news that she received the FFGC Special Projects Award for her mosaic at Hoke Library.  A member provided pot-luck followed and was enjoyed by all.  Ann Marie Gray from Pinders gave us a demonstration on how to create a charming container of succulents. She discussed the many varieties and told us how to create our own mini-garden of succulents and how to grow, refresh, propagate, and take care of succulents.

 

 

 

At our March meeting we received a lesson from Ann Nyhuis of A Garden's Glory on growing and using Mico-Greens. Each member received a Mico-Greens kit to start them in the direction of healthier eating.

 

 

February's meeting brought us to the St. Lucie Botanical Gardens where we were treated to a lovely day strolling their gardens and their for sale plant selection. After our regular meeting we heard from the gardens docent on the history and creation of their gardens that are bordered by the St Lucie River. Be sure to visit if you didn't make that meeting.

Oh boy, did we have a fun at the January meeting. Our room was transformed into the mad hatter's tea party with lot of goodies furnished by our hospitality committee. Our speaker was Tim Brown, Director of Education for the Treasure Coast Wildlife Center. Tim brought with him among others, a King snake, a baby gator, a crocodile, a Great Horned Owl  and a Red Tailed Hawk. 

 

 

Our December meeting /fundraiser was held on December 5th and was a lot of fun. More than twenty vendors showed their offerings to excited attendees. There was everything from jewelry, to artwork, to hand made "tied-up" furniture. Tons of raffles were won and an appetizer buffet was served. The proceeds will go far in providing summer scholarships.

 

 November's meeting was hands-on and rock-solid. The meeting kicked off with a class on creating concrete planters made with terry cloth. It was a bit messy but each member that participated had a special pot of their own making to take home. Everyone agreed this is a project that they would like to be repeated.

 

 

The first meeting of the 2018-2019 JBGC was well attended. We welcomed new members; Delphine Anderson, Sonya Brown, Mikki Ciombor, Nan Davis, Mary Decastro, Wanda Diaz, Steve Glowacki, and Jan Rogan. The executive board and committee chairs previewed the upcoming events, trips and fundraisers for the new season. The first fundraiser will be a vendor event with over 20 vendor offerings. Each vendor will also donate a basket to be raffled. The date for the event is December 5th from Noon to 4PM. Tickets are $25 and include admission and appetizer buffet. It will be held at Eagle's Nest Restaurant at the Eagle Marsh Golf Clubhouse.
