The Coral Gables Garden Club began the Red Mangrove Project in 2013, a project to restore mangroves to our coastal area. The club planted 300 pups in the bay and won the National Garden Club's First Place Award for the 2013-2015 theme “Making a Difference” for this project. We also won the Project of the Year Award given by the Miami Dade Council of Garden Club Presidents.
The club continues to grow pups, thanks to our member Rhonda Anderson who is spearheading a new Red Mangrove project. Over 500 trees will be planted in 2020 after hurricane season.
