Green Thumb Garden Club Continues to Support Non-Profits in South Walton

The charter of the Green Thumb Garden Club, Inc. (GTGC) is to give back to the community in South Walton. In keeping with their charter, the generous members of the GTGC have multiple, on-going projects to which they donate time and financial support. Of special note are the projects at the John Horton Senior Center located on North County 393 and the new Habitat for Humanity ReStore located on Highway 98, both in Santa Rosa Beach.

Named after the man who worked tirelessly to create a meeting place for seniors in South Walton, the John Horton Senior Center is now receiving much needed attention in the form of exterior landscaping and a vegetable garden. Alongside the GTGC volunteers, the seniors participate in the planting and upkeep of the vegetable garden. As the harvest comes in, the seniors will also benefit from their labors.

Landscaping will begin soon at the new Habitat for Humanity ReStore. The Habitat project landscaper from Maclin Coastal Construction and Janet Woerner, Habitat’s Community Outreach Leader will work with GTGC members on the front landscaping of the new building.

The Green Thumb Garden Club, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and a member of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs and the National Garden Club Deep South Region. New members are welcome into the Green Thumb Garden Club. All safety guidelines related to COVID-19 are followed at GTGC events.
