Greetings to all FLGC Members,


As July marked the beginning of our 94th year as the Fort
Lauderdale Garden Club, the outlook for 2021-2022
appeared to be far more favorable than at that point last
year. Our anticipation is that we will be able to enjoy
uninterrupted programming and events as a group once
again.

Despite our inability to gather together in person last
year, our commitment to enrich our members’ and our
greater community’s love of gardens and gardening
persevered. Our club was awarded a prestigious
Emerald Award by NatureScape Broward County in their
Special Achievement category for our beautiful gardens
that emphasize native plantings. Several of our
members also received Awards for exemplifying Floridafriendly
landscapes in their home gardens.

Now, one year later, we can look forward to sharing our
collective love and knowledge of gardens and gardening
with one another as well as with the Ft. Lauderdale
community through our monthly meetings, plant sales,
flower shows and Secret Garden Tour, all of which are
open to the public.

Along with sharing our knowledge and expertise on
horticulture with the greater community, the proceeds from
our plant sales and Secret Garden Tour are re-invested
within this sector. Scholarships for students are available to
Camp Wekiva, an FFGC summer nature program that
nurtures the love of our environment. Our club members
also work within the local school system through our Youth
Gardening program. These volunteers act as mentors to
students of all ages, to educate them about plants, flowers
and floral design and to stimulate an appreciation for their
roles as novice stewards of their own environments.


“Every Garden Counts!” will continue to be the theme of my
presidency. Our club embraces all levels of interest in
horticulture, design, the environment, gardens and
gardening. We thrive on interacting with one another to
provide encouragement and share expertise, all in the spirit
of friendship. Our members are like our beloved
perennials….they come back every year, stronger and more
beautiful!


I am honored to be leading this dynamic group, and I am
grateful to the FLGC Board for their support and
involvement and for all of the many volunteers who invest
their time and energy in our Club’s projects.


I will look forward to seeing you all at our first meeting in
October and to working with you in the coming year!


Susie MacPherson


President of Fort Lauderdale Garden Club
