Spring Tree and Plant Sale 2002
2006 Spring Tree & Plant Sale - Downtown Titusville
Who we are: A non-profit Club that enjoys gardening and contributing to our City's beautification and our environment.
What we are: As a part of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs, we are a partner of the Titusville Garden Club.
What we do: We educate and help each other to enjoy gardening. We assist others to propagate, grow and distribute trees and plants to non-profit organizations. We participate in Titusville's "Tree City" initiative to plant 2,000 trees. We partner with Titusville Environmental Commission, Native Plant Society, and local school children. Our goal is to plant 2,000 trees/year to reduce 2,000 tons of CO2
Where we meet: We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 10:00a.m. at our "Tree Farm" near the Titusville Water Maintenance Facility (see below for map).
How we operate: We presently sponsor an March and October Tree and Plant Sale. The sales receipts are used to support the Club, purchase materials and donate plants to the City and other worthy non-profit causes. Some members grow plants to landscape their own homes (all are welcome to do so). Members adopt trees and plants to grow and have fun.
Tree and Plant Sale
The members of the Men's Club hold both a Spring and Fall Tree and Plant Sale. Profits from this project go to purchase needed growing materials for the Tree Farm, which is an ongoing, year-round project. Some proceeds also are used to assist with Garden Club activities.
Dedicated members, both men and women, work at the Tree Farm several days a week to keep up with the weeding, fertilizing, up-potting, propagating, etc. The majority of the horticulture stock comes from the Tree Farm, and is raised and nurtured by the members.
Many of our members come to the Tree Farm on Tuesday & Thursday mornings for a few hours to care for our trees and plants; others come when their schedule permits. For a tour visit to our nursery facilities, please ask a member.
We enjoy at least two dinner/social events per year. We have upcoming plans to include some field trips to nurseries and special places like Leu Gardens.
Our monthly meetings provide great networking and fellowship, as well as enjoying some great speakers. We welcome visitors to our monthly meetings.
FNATS (Landscape Show): In Sept/Oct, our members go to this yearly event in Orlando at the Convention Center. This is one of the highlights of our Club as area growers and nurseries exhibit all kinds of trees, palms, citrus, plants, orchids, roses, ferns, etc. It is a gardener's dream come true
