About The Bartram Garden Club, Inc.
The club started in September 2016 with twenty six charter members.
We started strong. Several charter members are seasoned garden club veterans who share their expertise and council to newer members.
Three members are accredited NGC Flower Show Judges.
Our mission is to promote the love of gardening, floral design, and civic and environmental responsibility in our community.
We currently meet at the GFWC Woman's Club of Fernandina Beach.
Regular meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month September through May from 10:30am - 12n. Social time begins at 10:00am.
New members are warmly welcomed and membership is inexpensive:
