Valparaiso Garden Club


Valparaiso Garden Club encourages educational events and activities through contributions to the Friends of the Gardens of Northwest Florida, Okaloosa County Master Gardeners, and other like-minded organizations. In addition, the Garden Club works with and encourages youth gardeners by providing gardening and floral design activities, flower shows, and awards scholarships to students in support of educational pursuits reflecting club goals.

The Garden Club offers an outlet for creative junior and adult gardeners through networking with like-minded people. Garden Club membership provides numerous opportunities such as: learning about gardening in our unique area, training for potential leadership roles within the club, participation in community-sponsored events and more.

The Valparaiso Garden Club meets at 9:00 a.m. on the second Wednesday of each month. Meetings are held at the Trinity Presbyterian Church fellowship hall at 44 Southview Ave. in Valparaiso. Click to view the full Valparaiso Garden Club Membership brochure.
