  • Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL (1888PressRelease) July 16, 2020 - The Garden promotes healthy living through educational programs and organic gardening on its property located at the corner of Grove Street and North Betty Lane in Clearwater. Each attendee donated items to help facilitate the CCGís everyday activities and kidís programs.

    At the tea party, the manager of the Garden took the attendees through a virtual tour of gardenís grounds. Attendees eagerly explored some of the various garden plots, pollinator garden and honey bee hives through high-resolution photos.

    ďItís only with the help of our volunteers that we can organize these tea parties to spread awareness about taking care of our environment and growing organic food through the Garden,Ē said Michael Soltero, Manager of the CCV Center.

    The Charity Tea Parties are put on exclusively by volunteers of the CCV and are held on a monthly basis, each time gathering much-needed supplies for a local nonprofit. Following CDC guidelines on social distancing and wearing masks was required throughout the event.

    Gertie Perry, volunteer and organizer of the Charity Tea Party said, ďAt the tea party we get to help a local nonprofit gather the supplies they need. Attendees can network with each other, getting to know other like-minded individuals and learn about a great cause in our community. One of the best parts is that itís fun too.Ē

    Perry said ďMany of the attendees today had never visited the Gardens. Humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard stresses the importance of their mission during his horticultural research in England, ĎI found that we must have a better communication with plants, if we are ever to begin to understand them and use them to the fullest advantage of mankind.íĒ

    The CCV Center provides its facilities and services at no cost to nonprofits and community groups as a means of creating a safer community by facilitating the activities of organizations like the Clearwater Community Gardens.
