Gardens – Popular through the Ages

Spring has sprung and many of us are going through the annual ritual of freshening our gardens, planting new bedding plants, weeding, etc.  Our next fundraising event in Narcoossee supports this as we offer colorful bromeliads and other plants for your garden and delicious baked goods to fortify you for all that gardening work!

An image of a garden in Narcoossee illustrates how, even in the 1800s, early area settlers took pride and enjoyment from the plants adorning our homes.

It is hard to imagine a world without plants – not only the “feel good” aesthetic but also the health benefits of such are well-documented.  So, the next time you sit under that oak tree, spend a little time wondering who might have enjoyed it, as well, a century ago…  If only our plants could talk, the stories they could tell!

And join us on Saturday, April 27th from 8am to noon at the historic 1886 Narcoossee Schoolhouse where you can purchase a bromeliad for only $5 each or five bromeliads for $20 and choose from other plants as well.  Also pick up a delicious treat(s) for your enjoyment.

All proceeds go towards our continued efforts to preserve the Narcoossee Schoolhouse and plans for a local area history museum.  If you enjoy learning and sharing local history, attend a Chapter meeting and see what we are all about – meetings are held the first Monday of every month (unless a national holiday) at 5:30pm at the Narcoossee Community Center, 5354 Rambling Road, St. Cloud, FL  34771.
 

Enjoy the spring!
