MISSION STATEMENT

The Green Thumb Garden Club, Inc. located in Walton County, Florida, is a non-profit organization. Our key purpose is to stimulate interest in the beautification of Walton County, to further the education of our members and the public in fields of gardening, horticulture, botany, floral design, environmental awareness, conservation of natural resources, civic beautification, nature studies, and to instill in our youth the love of gardening and respect for the environment.

Together we can learn, share ideas, grow our gardens, teach our children, love nature and conserve our environment. The greatest gift of all is the making of lifelong friends with a common goal ~ the love of all things beautiful.
