FFGC 2013 Convention
The Garden Council along with District IX of the FFGC will be hosting the FFGC 2013 Convention at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort and Spa on April 29 and 30 with an early arrivals program the night of April 28, 2013. We anticipate 300 – 400 attendees with 1200 room nights being used. This will not only showcase our area, but provide a significant economic return to the community.
The Garden Council stages a large Flower Show every other year at local area attractions. This show is held in accordance to all NGC Standards.
Arbor Day is celebrated annually with a tree planting by members. In 2012, a coconut palm was installed at the historic Edison & Ford Winter Estates as a tribute to all Past Presidents of the Council.
Our annual Open House includes demonstrations, sales, informational booths from affiliate members, and tours.
