Welcome to the Punta Gorda Garden Club’s website. The club was founded in 1949 and federated in 1950. We are members of Florida Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc. District IX; Florida Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc; Deep South Region National Garden Clubs, Inc. and National Garden Clubs, Inc.
Our meetings are held at the First United Methodist Church, Lenox Hall, 507 W. Marion Ave., Punta Gorda, FL, on the third Wednesday of each month with refreshments starting at 1 p.m. followed by a short business meeting and program starting at 1:30 p.m. Please check our Program Page and current newsletter for any changes in the meeting. Membership in PGGC is open to all regardless of gender, age, race, ethnicity or religious affiliation. We hope to see you at a meeting.
The purpose of the club is to promote the beautification and improvement of Punta Gorda and the surrounding areas; to encourage the growing of flowers, plants and shrubbery in public and private places; to cooperate in the conservation of natural resources and to promote education in these areas. Club members have designed and maintain four community gardens.
Celebrating Southern Hospitality and History
We support Habitat for Humanity, Educational Concerns Hunger Organization and Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center. Our members are active in a club sponsored program in the elementary schools. We provide scholarships for higher education to graduating seniors at our high schools and provide camperships to elementary youth at FFGC’s Camp Wekiva, a nature camp in Apopka, FL.
Please check our Program Page in August for the upcoming 2015-2016 programs.
The Holly Days Home Tour is our only fundraiser. The 2015 tour, “Nature’s Sparkling Christmas Memories” will be held December 4 and 5, 2015. Club members decorate four homes in the Historic District of Punta Gorda using all natural materials. Photos from our 2014 tour can be found on the Home Tour Page from our 2014 Home Tour and on Facebook.
