Garden Fairies Community Enhancement Projects have raised funds for numerous entities; hospitals, day care centers, parks, community centers and local municipalities.

   - In 2004 The Garden Fairies "Artistic Garden Tour" raised $8000 for beautification projects at Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs.

   - Two years ago The Garden Fairies (with additional assistance from the Garden Fairy Pro Artist Group of Seven) donated $155,000 worth of time and materials to a community courtyard garden/ outdoor classroom in St. Pete which helped The Front Porch Community Redevelopment Association procure $200,000 in funding from the State of Florida. See the FP project at  http://www.ourfpneighborhoods.org/

   - 2009- Funds raised from The Garden Fairies "Art in the Garden Tour" will go to the creation of a pocket park, currently a vacant lot in downtown Tarpon Springs. We will be doing a large mosaic mural and building a park which will be used for outdoor events; concerts, a green market, festivals and a green space for all to enjoy.

   - 2010- preliminary plans are being developed for a project in Safety Harbor.
