The Garden Club of Coral Springs was formed by a handfull of home gardeners who had learned through trial and error how to grow and maintain beautiful landscaped and gardens. We wanted to share our experiences and knowledge with others. A great percentage of Floridians are from northern and western areas of our vast country and find that nearly everything they knew about gardening did not apply to South Florida. The Garden Club of Coral Springs is far, far, far more than just a flower club. It’s hoped that this Web site allows you a glimpse at just how complex this young, 18 year-old nonprofit organization is, as well as how attuned the organization volunteer leadership is to our vision and mission.
- Protecting and conserving natural resources
- Advancing the art of gardening, horticulture and floral design
- Promoting civic and roadside beautification
- Develop a strong youth program in our community
- Encourage the love of gardening among our piers and future gardeners
With a primary focus on member’s education and enjoyment and our community beautification, the GCCS’s aspirations are, truly, our possibilities. We look forward to you joining us on this most pleasurable and rewarding of voyages.
Today’s Garden Club is on the Cutting Edge for Action. Coral Springs lies at the Gateway to the Everglades. We are currently working with our public officials to have our City declared a “Community Wildlife Habitat”.
We assist financially and physically (hands on) in The Habitat for Humanity Landscape Project for homes built in Broward County.
Each year we present $500 Scholarships to qualified High School graduates majoring in horticulture, environmental science, landscape architecture, marine biology or a related science.
Every spring we conduct “Coral Springs Looking Good” a beautification awards project culminating with our Mayor presenting The Mayor’s Beautification Award to recognize exceptional properties that, through their landscape design and structure, have made a contribution to keeping Coral Springs beautiful. Resident’s of our community are urged to nominate their choice. Nominations forms will be available starting in January.
