‘March in the Park’ set for March 9

By Staff | Jan 9, 2013

Preparations are under way for the fifth annual “March in the Park,” a plant and garden art sale, to be held on Saturday, March 9, from 9 a.m. to 3p.m., at Jaycee Park in Cape Coral.

“March in the Park” is a major fund raising event for the Garden Club of Cape Coral.

All proceeds from “March in the Park” help the Garden Club achieve its goals of awarding local high school students merit awards in horticulture, civic beautification, Habitat for Humanity, Wekiva Youth Camp sponsorships, and to promote civic awareness of environmental and conservation concerns.

Last year the Garden Club had more than 40 vendors in attendance selling all kinds of plants, from ground cover to palm trees, and garden art, from stepping stones to glass reflectors. Speakers, raffle drawings, food and music will be available thru out the day.

This year plans are under way for an even bigger event.

If you are a vendor selling plants, food, or do a craft that is garden related and want to join our juried show, contact, Ginny Huffer, 239-257-2654, Huffmom5@aol.com.

The Garden Club of Cape Coral meets the second Wednesday of each month, at 7 p.m., at the Epiphany Episcopal Church of Cape Coral, 2507 Del Prado Blvd.

All meetings are open to the public, come join us to learn about Florida gardening and promote fellowship among gardeners.
