What we're about

We are gardeners with a passion for growing all kinds of tropical fruit and sharing our knowledge, our fruit, and our plants. There's an amazing variety of fantastic tasting tropical fruit. Have you ever tried an atemoya? A nispero? Mango, lychee, papaya, avocado, longan, sugar apple, pomegranate, and citrus galore - the list goes on and on....... they can all be grown right here in Sarasota. Don't have a yard? No problem. There are many tropical fruits suitable for container growing on your patio. This group is for anyone who has an interest in learning more about growing rare fruit, from beginner to expert. All are welcome! Bienvenido!

It is necessary that we reimburse our speakers for their travel expenses. Because of this ongoing expense associated with having high quality talks, we would greatly appreciate a donation of $5 for each talk you choose to attend. However if you like what you hear and like saving money, we recommend you join our club - our annual dues are only $10 per person or $20 per couple/family. Life membership is $100 per person. Hope to see you at our next meeting. If you are a full time student under the age of 21, we can waive this request with proper ID.

We meet at the Sarasota Garden Club building, located at 1131 Blvd. of the Arts, adjacent to the Hyatt Hotel. This is also next to the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center. Seeyathere!
