Twenty-eight members of the Coral Gables Garden Club visited Montgomery Botanical Center for a lecture on MBC’s collections and history given by Dr. Patrick Griffith followed by a tour of the property.

The Coral Gables Garden Club was established in 1925, and has a deep history of working to promote gardening and to beautify the Coral Gables community.

Nell Montgomery was an early Member and Director of the Coral Gables Garden Club. Nell hosted a similar lecture and tour here in early 1936, which featured a lecture by Col. Robert Montgomery and tour of “the largest collection of tropical palms in the country.”

MBC thanks the Coral Gables Garden Club for their support of research, conservation, and education at Montgomery Botanical Center.”I always enjoy seeing the Coral Gables Garden Club here at MBC. Having such a steadfast group of supporters in our city helps keep our great botanical traditions thriving,” said Griffith.
