History of the Iris Garden Club of Wakulla County
Kate Brimberry was the first president of the Iris Garden Club. Initially meetings were held at the Panacea Women's Club. The club was organized in 1977 and joined the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs the following year. The club incorporated in 2004 and now has 501(c)3 status as a non-profit entity.
the Iris Garden Club has several ongoing and annusl events. Each January, beginning in 2004 we have sponsored an Arbor Day celebration at Hudson Park in downtown Crawfordvieel. We buy 800-1000 native bare root trees, pot them up at Just Fruits Nursery and give them away the following year. Everyone who signs in receives their choice of a free tree or shrub for their yard.
We also sponsor garden therapy gardens at our local senior center and a local nursing home. Our youth gardening committee works with children at 2 local schools and hopes to start another youth gardening program at our new community center. We work alongside the local Sarracenia Chapter of the Florida Ntice Plant Society to maintain the native plant garden at our local library where we hold our meetings. whenever a Habitat for Humanity house is reay for occupancy, we help landscape the yard fot the new occupants. Over the years we have helped with several wildflower projects along our roadsides. Our active members enjoy working together on these projects.
