Meets Third Tuesday - 6 pm in Each Other's Homes
Circle President: Sara Zollinger
Established in 2010, we meet in each other's homes. Membership of 13. We are cross generational from those with children still working to those that are retired. We have members in their 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s,and even 70s. We have been reviewing different members' gardens as we meet in each other's homes so that we are familiar with their garden and can assist with any problems or concerns. In the coming year each hostess will be doing her own program. This group is just so much fun!

The Blue Sage Garden Circle, formed in 1959, has 20 active members. Our meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of each month at 7 pm, which accommodates many of our members who work during the day. The meetings are usually held at one of the member’s homes, although we have an annual dinner at a local restaurant and several field trips throughout the year. As a gardening group, we enjoy learning through guest speakers, sharing ideas with each other and sharing plants. As a social group we enjoy each others company over a glass of wine or a cup of coffee. Our membership includes those who have lived in DeLand or Central Florida for a number of years, but some of us have moved here from other areas of the state or country and have new things to learn about gardening in this area. We are active in the community, active in the Garden Club of Deland, and strive to continue educating ourselves all of which aids in our work to keep DeLand beautiful.

The Daisy Garden Circle began blooming in 1973 as an off-shoot of the Pansy Garden Circle, with a Charter Membership of 41. Today we've blossomed into 26 actives and 12 associates. Like the Shasta Daisy, we are versatile and sure to add a little sunshine to the scene. Our group meets the second Thursday morning of each month at a member's home, usually with a program such as a plant exchange, butterfly gardening to a floral arranging demonstration. We have a Christmas and a Spring luncheon as well as a Spring Social to include our husbands. On occasion, we've been known to sprout up in another field on a trip such as taking a tour of Victoria Park homes and gardens. While our purpose is to develop skills in growing and arranging flowers and beautification of home and community, we are a sociable bouquet and probably most focused on sharing, caring and being supportive of each other. We enjoy our time together as much or more than our purpose suggests.
