The Garden Club of Coral Springs is forming new members for the “Natures Bloomers” youth group and has several events for new members to participate in.
The club offers teens an exciting way to get engaged in a positive and planet-friendly environment, provide service to the community, and develop a basic understanding of gardening while forming friendships that grow from the ground up.
The free interactive educational event for students ages 12-18 meets at the Sawgrass Nature Center (in the pavilion behind the building) on the second Thursday of every month (excluding April) from 4 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Member Nancy Varillas is excited to help spread awareness to youth members and help provide scholarship opportunities to potential recipients.
“Three $1,000 Scholarships were just updated for the 2023 cycle, with two high school seniors and one college attendee eligible for the award,” said Varillas, adding to be considered for the scholarship, you must be a Coral Springs resident and be enrolled in a Florida College majoring in a field or study related to the environment or horticulture.
