Did you know that garden clubs got their start in the South? The first garden club in the United States was founded in 1891 in Georgia, and our own garden club was started in 1935! Whether you are from the South or just love to visit us here in the beautiful city of Key West, we know everyone loves a beautiful tropical garden.
Join the garden club with a friend, your family, or on your own – you are sure to meet like-minded gardeners. Every garden club is different, and the Key West Garden Club is special indeed. With the backdrop of an historic Civil War Martello fort and the view of the ocean as well, the gardens become a magical place.
Membership has its privileges at the West Martello Gardens – discounts on plants and merchandise, educational and entertaining speakers, and much more!
Your gift can help us keep our gardens growing for the enjoyment and education of the over 60,000 annual visitors.
As a private, non-profit garden, volunteers are crucial to our mission of educating the community in tropical gardening, conservation, and to the historic West Martello Tower.
