Fragrance Garden: Hurricane Irma recovery efforts for February 2018

Hurricane Irma may have kicked the Fragrance Garden hard, but we’re coming back with renewed enthusiasm and purpose!  Now that “season” is in full swing, we have lots of snowbird volunteers who are ready, willing, and able to help put the pieces back together again.

Early in February, the Fragrance Garden team planted a red powder puff and a “Little Gem” magnolia to help replace what was lost.  We also recently visited the “garden market” at the Edison Ford Estates to purchase replacements for plants that were crushed or waterlogged during the hurricane.


Public generosity has gotten us this far on the long road toward recovery. Here ‘s how you can help –

We have a campaign on GoFundMe that is dedicated to collecting funds for the purpose of recovering from Hurricane Irma. It’s going to be a long journey, one that will not happen overnight.
