Naples Garden Club/ Annual House & Garden Tour

Our major fundraising effort, the Naples House & Garden Tour held every February, is designed to help fulfill our mission of promoting, encouraging, and educating the people of the Naples community about the beauty and benefits of our natural environment.

This event showcases Naples homes and gardens, embraces the community, displays the creativity and talent of our members in the designs that adorn each house but most importantly, raises funds to further the Club’s goals.

Money raised from this event is reinvested in our community by funding scholarships to students and grants to various worthy organizations including Naples Botanical Garden, Habitat for Humanity, Naples Historical Society, Shelter for Abused Women, Conservancy of Southwest Florida, Garden Clubs of Florida Projects, The Philharmonic and Rookery Bay. Most recently, funds established The Idea Garden at Naples Botanical Garden and the Naples Garden Club Fellowship Endowed Fund was established at Florida Gulf Coast University for graduate and undergraduate students majoring in horticulture, a botany-related field, or environmental studies who conduct research at the Kapnick Center at Naples Botanical Garden.

Over the years we have distributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to these and other worthy causes and every year we strive to improve and enhance the public's experience.
