The Monthly meeting of the South Dade Garden Club takes place on the second Thursday of the month at the usual location — Fruit & Spice Park community room at 24801 SW 187th Avenue, starting at 7pm.
Local farmer and historian Jorge J. Zaldivar of Guavonia Guava Grove presents The History, Seed Introduction and Lore of Florida Guava. To early pioneers of South Florida, the guava was a critical crop, providing valuable income and juice for making jellies and other preserved specialties.
South Florida’s oldest garden club was established in 1924 and continues the tradition of sharing the love and appreciation for the abundant tropical species of South Florida, and the spirit of camaraderie among its members. As always, members and guests are welcome. Refreshments will be served after the program. The public is welcome to attend. Bring a friend!
