Established in 1937, our members continue on with the tradition of fostering the education of camellia care, propagation and exhibition for generations.
On the third Tuesday of the month, our Club meetings offer speakers and demonstrations with many opportunities for hands on experiences. The 2018-2019 Camellia season begins in September and goes through April with programs on gibbing, air-layering, grafting, companion plants and bonsai camellias. This year, we are excited to host the Gulf Coast Camellia Society’s Annual Conference in October with special speakers: Brie Arthur, Florence Crowder and Dr. Mack Thetford. In December, we will have our 80th Annual Camellia Show at the UWF Conference Center where we will offer guided tours of the UWF Camellia Garden with camellia plant sales. We also have scheduled field trips to the Tallahassee Camellia Show with a tour of Maclay Gardens, as well as a visit to Agricola, MS for an in-depth grafting experience.
Check out our calendar to see all of our other community events, and join us the third Tuesday of the month at the Garden Center, located at 1850 N 9th Avenue in Pensacola, Florida. Social and refreshments begin at 6:30 pm followed by the program at 7:00 pm.
October 16th, 2018 guest speaker is Brie Arthur who appears on PBS show ‘Growing a Greener World,’ and author of Foodscape Revolution will be at our banquet.
