The Men’s Garden Club of Jacksonville is a IRS 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1945. Our purpose is to learn about gardening, fellowship, and enrich our community. We invite you to become a member. General membership is $25 annually which includes our Annual Member’ Barbecue.
Meetings are held on the first Monday of the month during the months of September through May (the September meeting is held the last Monday of August) at the Garden Club of Jacksonville,1005 Riverside Avenue, Jacksonville, Florida 32204 unless otherwise noted on the meetings and events listings.
Meetings are open to anyone interested in participating with our organization. Members can participate in a monthly plant exchange, learn tips about gardening from peers as well as presentations by local gardening experts. The Men’s Garden Club, along with the City of Jacksonville maintains a Camellia Garden at Riverside Park. The Camellia Garden was created in 1967 and showcases one of the area’s finest horticultural specimens. We are able to tend the Camellia Garden frequently, thanks to our great volunteer members.
The Men’s Garden Club hosts an Annual Plant Sale at the Greater Jacksonville Agricultural Fair in November (please note that the plant sale will not be held in 2021) that helps support our community involvement missions, projects, and scholarship funds. Some of our more notable endeavors include the Jim Watson Scholarship Fund at the University of Florida, the Junior Master Gardeners Program in Jacksonville, the Aloe Vera Project and the 4H.
Please come out and enjoy yourselves at the fair and take home some great plants for a great cause!
