Sarasota Garden Club

1131 Boulevard of the Arts
Sarasota, FL 34236


Our Mission:

Preserving our tranquil botanical gardens and our historic landmarks while fostering appreciation and promotion of Florida gardening principles, floral design, and civic beautification through education and programs for all.

Founded in 1927, Sarasota Garden Club's historic richness has continued to grow over 87 years. Mable Ringling was the first club president and thanks to the many volunteers efforts and passion for gardening, activities and community spirit continue to endure.  Enhancing Sarasota's horticulture through education, SGC strives to promote sound ecological and conservation practices that will last in perpetuity.  The Clubhouse was built in 1960, in the Sarasota School of Architecture style. It is now a Sarasota Historic registered building, and is meticulously maintained by the club through donations and labor. Located on 1.5 Botanical Acres in the heart of downtown Sarasota, its grounds remain open to the public, free of charge.
