Every month the Garden Club of Cape Coral organizes a tour of a garden or place of interest. In the past, we have toured Vizcaya Gardens in Miami, US Sugar in Clewiston, Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve in Fort Myers, and Marie Selby Gardens in Sarasota. MONTHLY EVENTS AND TOURS WILL NOT BE HELD IN FALL 2020 DUE TO COVID-19. However, we will have our monthly meetings online with ZOOM. In lieu of a monthly event or tour members are invited to watch a gardening webinar. Here are a few suggestions:
Monday, November 11, 2019 Visit Koreshan State Historic Site in Estero, FL. The Koreshans were a utopian religious sect who believed the universe existed within a giant hollow sphere.
