The Yarn Bombing was a huge success!!
We collected squares and dollars from people all around the Citrus County area, and we had enough to cover 3 trees. We also raised enough money to replace 3 trees along Orange Avenue. It was a sight to behold, and lots of people stopped and took pictures. A very enjoyable event!
Please join us!

"We grow so that we might better live."
Mary Lou Eaton and Donna Thomas attended the Wekiva training course February 19-21. They learned about the WEKIVA YOUTH CAMP, a residential nature camp for 3rd through 8th graders.
Floral City Garden Club sponsors local youth to attend the one week program to instill a love and respect for the Real Florida through nature study, conservation, and a fun interactive environment.
Contact us if you know a Floral City youngster interested in becoming an environmental leader of tomorrow, or to donate to sponsor a youth to attend this program.
