The Clermont Garden Club
The Clermont Garden Club is holding its annual Spring Garden Festival on Saturday, May 4, 2024 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Clermont Garden Club located at 849 West Avenue in Historic Downtown Clermont, FL. Vendors and local nurseries will sell a variety of different products from bamboo, tropical plants, apparel, glass flower art, etc. to meet the needs of the gardening public. There will be a small free “make-and-take” project for kids. Tickets for member-created raffle baskets will also be available. Bring a friend, bring a wagon and shop! Remember that Mother’s Day is coming on May 12th!
The  Spring Garden Festival is one of the Club’s yearly fundraisers. Funds raised  are used for the Club’s goals of educating its members and the community in their relationship to horticulture, conservation, 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 encourage you to visit and attend our meetings. The CGC facility is available to rent for meetings, parties, weddings, etc. (see
