Did you know that Nehrling Gardens in Gotha is listed on the National Register of
Historic Places and that the founder, Dr. Henry Nehrling, is widely credited as being the father
of Florida’s plant industry, especially the beautiful caladiums that have become synonymous
with our state?

Today, a group of dedicated volunteers is working to restore Dr. Nehrling’s garden as a
place of beauty, respite, and conservation. Organized as a non-profit entity, Nehrling Gardens is
open to the public. We support the garden by raising funds for programs, upkeep, and
maintenance. One way we do that is by sponsoring fund-raising events such as our upcoming
Spring Festival, Plant Sale & Art Stroll, Saturday, May 13, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Garden.

The day will include Florida-friendly plants for sale, a limited number of caladium bulbs
that are in precious supply this year due to last fall’s hurricanes, plein air artists, vendors
featuring garden products, raffles, food, live entertainment, and children’s activities designed
to encourage the next generation of conservationists and gardeners.

We invite you to join with us in supporting Nehrling Gardens by becoming a Spring
Festival, Plant Sale & Art Stroll sponsor. All proceeds benefit the Garden.

Sponsorship puts your company and your support for conservation on display in front of
affluent members of the Windermere, Isleworth, Keene’s Pointe, Dr. Phillips, Winter Garden,
West Orange, and Gotha communities. Our audience comprises highly educated consumers
who value conservation, nature, gardens, and things of beauty and who shop locally.

Please join with us by investing in our community and the precious resource that is Nehrling Gardens by becoming a Spring Festival, Plant Sale & Art Stroll sponsor. Thank you for considering our request. We look forward to welcoming you on May 13.
