President’s Message

The members of the Sweetwater Oaks Garden Club, Inc., seek to continue to increase our knowledge and understanding of the environment, gardening, landscaping and floral design. We achieve this goal by offering educational opportunities for our members and our community. Most important, we support our youth, the future leaders of our world. We sow our seeds for the future, by donating educational scholarships to deserving college students majoring in horticulture, environment, or related fields of study. We sponsor younger students to attend the Florida Federation Garden Club, Wekiva Youth Camp, where they may experience a taste of nature in the middle of a fast paced world. We really enjoy our common goals and develop many life long friendships with each other, as a result.

Our club activities include monthly meetings with informative programs, activities and field trips. We have a very active Youth Gardener group that meet monthly and our members really enjoy working with these young children. Every Friday a group of loyal members meet at Hospice of the Comforter and create floral designs for the patients and families. Our club has a very active Horticulture group. The Chairman provides detailed horticulture reports at monthly meetings, and writes informative articles for our newsletter. Three times a year our horticulture group meets to tour members’ gardens, share plants and knowledge.

Our membership fees and fundraisers support all club activities, scholarships and donations to our community. We have two large fund raising events each year. The January “Card Party” is a long time tradition where members and guests can form a group and play a game of their choice, have a great lunch and a good time with their friends. Our club’s annual “Garden Fair”has become one of the most successful events in our local community and everyone looks forward to participating each year. We have vendors with plants and garden related items for sale, a floral design exhibit, and educational exhibits where attendees are able to listen and learn from many well-known, local gardening experts. It is a great day of community outreach!

Communication is important. Our club has a fantastic monthly newsletter with detailed information about events, meetings, programs, lots of photos and educational articles. We send out emails during the month as a way to keep the membership informed on club news. The Florida Federation Garden Club also sends out a beautiful magazine three times a year, statewide, to all members.  

We encourage you to join us and participate in the many activities our club, the National Garden Clubs, Inc., and the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc. has to offer. We would love to welcome you to our club!


Sharing knowledge and friendship in gardening,.
