The Garden Club of Fort Pierce will host its annual Mega Indoor Yard and Plant Sale from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 7 at Glidden Park in Fort Pierce. This group of dedicated locals has turned their passion of plants and unique items into a great annual event.
The club, which is 52 members strong, hosts this event for community members to buy locally grown plants and gently used items. “Here’s the best part: It is a win/win situation. You find great buys and the Garden Club earns the cash needed to support its community projects,” remarked Dotty Greene, a Garden Club member. This year, the funds raised will support the annual scholarship for a student in a horticulture-related field, the Wekiva Youth/Nature Camp and community beautification efforts.
A team of dedicated club members has been sorting, polishing and pricing the items that have been delivered for the sale.Those attending can expect to find Christmas items, a hardware/equipment area, sports gear, great books and games, linens, kitchen wares, table and wall décor, clothing, and interesting jewelry. “We are always surprised by some of the treasures. That makes it extra fun as we enjoy the tradition of sharing our goods for a very good cause,” Greene said.
Outside, the plant sale will include an assortment of bromeliads, heliconia and landscape plants. Club members have been hard at work improving the landscaping for the historic building, where they have been meeting for more than six decades, so it will be the perfect time to visit.
Glidden Park, which is the home of the Fort Pierce Garden Club, is located at 911 Parkway Drive (at the intersection of Georgia Avenue and 10th Street). Greene’s suggestion for shoppers is to arrive early. “The best selection is always earliest in the day. Quiet Glidden Park is a nice respite before or after downtown shopping.”
