What comes to mind when you hear the term “force of nature”? Hurricanes? Tornadoes? The Bloom & Grow Garden Society? That’s right! The members
of the Bloom & Grow Garden Society have been a driving force in the
West Orange County area since the club’s inception in 1997.
Look around our website and see what we've accomplished.

The Monarch Project
In October of 2021, the Bloom & Grow Garden Society installed their Monarch butterfly sculpture in downtown Winter Garden as a gift to the city for their help and support of our Spring Fever in the Garden festival. This significant piece of public art was designed by noted artist and sculptor, Don Reynolds. The copper beauty is in the new park so those who come to Winter Garden can enjoy it, too.
