By Grace Rabano, Publicity Lead for Clermont Garden Club
The Clermont Garden Club is holding its Annual Plant Sale on Saturday, November 18, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Clermont Garden Club located at 849 West Avenue in Historic Downtown Clermont, FL. Plants grown by Garden Club members, as well as gently-used garden items (ex., tools, pots, etc.) will be available for sale. Take chances to win member-created raffle baskets. A Master Gardener will be in attendance to answer questions about plants. Come out and bring a friend … and your wagon! Cash or checks accepted.
The Plant Sale is one of the Club’s fundraisers for the year. Funds are used for the Club’s goals of educating its members (as well as all community residents) in their relationship to horticulture, conservation, the environment, and the art of floral design. The Clermont Garden Club sponsors several students each year to attend Wekiva Youth Camp and SEEK (Save the Earth’s Environment through Knowledge). Wekiva Youth Camp is a residential nature camp for 3rd through 8th graders, with the purpose of instilling a love and respect for the “Real Florida” of our youth, as well as the knowledge of nature, conservation and the protection of our environment. SEEK is a 4-day conference for 10th, 11th and 12th graders where 70 students from all over Florida attend, to promote student initiative and leadership, to educate about climate change, water quality, and loss of wildlife habitat due to deforestation and development.
The Club also donates to ECHO (Education Concerns for Hunger Organization, headquartered at Ft. Myers, FL), which is a global organization that teaches citizens in countries ravaged by hunger how to create and sustain a seed bank, a water supply and current knowledge about horticulture and animals to help feed their families and communities. 
Clermont Garden Club plans and provides many opportunities for members of the community to participate in a variety of floral design classes, horticulture knowledge, field trips and many other gardening, environmental and conservation events.
The club is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization.  We meet the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 9:30 am, September through May (except for scheduled field trips, holidays and end-of-year luncheon). We encourage you to visit and attend our meetings. The CGC facility is available to rent for meetings, parties, weddings, etc. by contacting the Club’s rental chairman at
