Hanging by a string became a celebrated idea for Naples Garden Club members. Dozens of hanging, pot-less plants are one of the newest designs to display native hardy horticulture at Naples Botanical Garden. Club members got together Monday to pack dirt and plant roots into balls, cover them in moss and dangle the plants from a string in a Japanese art form called Kokedama . . .
2014 Grant Recipients
At its April 7, 2014, meeting, Naples Garden Club announced $58,000 in grants to Naples area nonprofit organizations.
The following grants were made:
- $20,000 to Florida Gulf Coast University Foundation, the final payment in support of the $100,000 Naples Garden Club Endowment to provide financial assistance to selected students who conduct research in plant science at the FGCU/Naples Botanical Garden Kapnick Education and Research Center.
- $10,000 to Conservancy of Southwest Florida, to landscape a pedestrian connection between the Naples Zoo and the Conservancy to the Naples Greenway. Pedestrian traffic between these three areas will greatly enhance visitation opportunities.

The Naples Daily News recently posted an article about the luncheon held on November 4, 2013. Members of the club joined at the Windstar Country Club to celebrate their milestone anniversary.
“They were planning events when Port Royal was still a farm. They’ve donated hundreds of thousands of dollars — and probably as many hours — to city beautification. And botany interns at Naples Botanical Garden and horticulture students from the city who may be studying elsewhere have the ability to do so in part because of them — The Naples Garden Club. . .” Click here to read the full article.
