HAPPY NEW YEAR!  It’s hard to believe that 2014 is coming to a close.  As I look back on all that has happened since our fiscal year began June 1, I’m delighted with what we’ve accomplished.

 

Here are a few highlights: Last summer we provided Wekiva Youth Camp scholarships for 13 boys and girls from 2nd to 9th grade, each of whom spent a fun-filled week at the FFGC-sponsored environmental and nature camp.  We also provided scholarships for nine high school students to attend FFGC’s SEEK (Saving the Earth’s Environment through Knowledge) Environmental Conference.

 

September brought an unexpected grant of $5,000 from Pratt & Whitney that has been put to good use at Equestrian Trails Elementary School where there are now five very active new junior garden clubs. Our other youth garden clubs and youth contests are thriving with over 30 members actively involved with our youth programs.

 

Also in 2014, members helped landscape two Habitat for Humanity homes; attended NGC’s Landscape Design and Flower Show Schools; had fun and created beautiful designs at our own Garden Art and Floral Design Workshops; and took some exciting trips.
 

In March we will celebrate Wellington Garden Week.  The kick-off event called “Gardening Makes a World of Difference” will be held on Sunday, March 8 from 11 AM to 4 PM.  It will include gardening and landscape design seminars that are free to the public, as well as a plant sale and other garden-related items for sale.  Your help is needed to make this event a success, so be sure to look for the sign-up sheets at the January 5 meeting. I know I can count on your support.
