BLOOM AND GROW GARDEN SOCIETY INC – Butterfly Sculpture in Winter Garden
Auction Ends: Feb 15, 2020 09:00 PM EST

The Bloom and Grow Garden Society is running an auction fundraiser to raise money for a large Butterfly Sculpture in Winter Garden.

Welcome to the very first On-Line Auction of the Bloom and Grow Garden Society of Winter Garden!

From January 15 - February 15, 2020, the Bloom and Grow Garden Society will be auctioning off a number of fun and unique items to raise money for a large Butterfly Sculpture that will be donated to the city of Winter Garden.  The Bloom and Grow Garden Society presented their plan for a large monarch butterfly sculpture to be placed in a proposed park scheduled for the downtown Plant Street area. This sculpture will be a gift from the Bloom and Grow members to the city of Winter Garden as a thank you for their help and partnership with Spring Fever in the Garden festival over the last 20 years. Don Reynolds, noted Central Florida artist and sculptor, has been commissioned to bring this gift to life. This large public art piece will be completed and placed in the city  late 2020 or early 2021.

The Bloom and Grow Garden Society has been a force in the West Orange County area since the club's inception in 1997. The club's mission is to stimulate a knowledge and love of gardening, promote and sustain native habitat, promote and sponsor educational horticultural experiences and civic involvement.

With projects like the Path of Life, a serenity garden located at Chapin's Station, the club was awarded the National Kellogg Award for civic beautification. 

Their scope of philanthropy has widened over the years. The club's sweat equity has been as great as the monetary donations with members working at West Orange Habitat for Humanity as well as Garden Therapy projects at area nursing homes and hospitals. The Bloom and Grow Garden Society provides funds to start youth gardens at area elementary schools. Annually, the group provides scholarships at the University of Florida and Valencia college for students in environmental and horticultural sciences. 

The Bloom and Grow Garden Society is proud to be part of the 1000 Trees for 1000 Years project and will be sponsoring and participating in a mass planting of trees at Tucker Ranch in Winter Garden on February 22, 2020.

Spring Fever in the Garden spring festival held in downtown Winter Garden will celebrate its 20th anniversary in April of 2020.
