GARDEN CLUB

Your Invitation to Join Us

We are starting out a brand new year.  If you are new to Sea Trail or if you have been here a while and are looking to expand your horizons, please consider joining us. We are a diverse group of women from all over the country. We have different backgrounds, interests, talents, abilities, and time constraints, thus we try to live up to our motto, “Bloom where you are planted.”  We are not your normal garden club with its horticultural emphasis but rather a group of neighbors whose interest in “growing our neighborhood.”

Social: We like to have fun. Our monthly meetings provide an opportunity to see old friends and make new ones by welcoming new members/residents. We schedule activities and social events for fun and profit. Additionally, we have been known to take some interesting and fun trips: a Caribbean cruise, Asheville and Mt. Airy and recently a trip to Brookgreen Gardens to view the Christmas lights.

Philanthropic: We hold several Fund Raisers such as fashion shows, live and silent auctions, book sales, raffles and garage sales throughout the year.  We also have Outreach at every meeting collecting goods or money for specific local needs. All our philanthropic efforts target local charities and organizations right here in Brunswick County, one of the poorest and least advantaged counties in our state. Additionally, we provide scholarship funds to college bound graduates of our local high school.

Support: We are a group of neighbors who share our joys, triumphs s and concerns. We come together to support one another.

Meetings & Educational Programs:  We normally meet on the second Tuesday morning of the month at The Pink Palace. Social time begins at 9:30. This is an opportunity to have a light snack, mingle and connect with other members. The meeting begins at 10:00. In addition to a short business meeting, every month we have an interesting, educational, often enlightening program.

If you are looking for a horticulture centered garden club, there is  fabulous organization in Shallot.  Coastal Garden Club of Shallotte

Garden Club on the Go

Three to four times a year excursions are planned for Garden Club members to travel to an interesting venue away from their usual meeting place, the Pink Palace. Sometimes the ladies remain “on campus” and tour homes and/ or gardens at Sea Trail. Other times, they carpool or charter a bus for a day trip or even over night. Almost always a meal is involved!

Announcement of upcoming trips will be made at monthly Garden Club meetings, via email blasts, and on the website. In most cases, your check will constitute your reservation. Since the number of participants varies for each trip, and often that number is limited, it is wise to sign up as early as possible for each trip.  For more information, please contact committee co-chairs, Linda Anthony or Betty Scott.
