Cary Garden Club of North Carolina
Some of the many flowers found in Cary, North Carolina
The Cary Garden Club, a member of the Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc. and the National Garden Club, Inc., was founded in 1958. (Also see ABOUT US.) If you enjoy gardening or just talking about gardening and want to meet some friends who share that interest, come on by! Most meeting programs present knowledgeable speakers on gardening related topics. The club has active planting projects at Hillcrest Cemetery, the Pollinator Garden at Page Walker and the "Dirt Devils" produce garden for Food Banks of Dorcas Ministries & Inter-Faith. We bake many dozen cookies for Cary’s annual December Holiday celebration at the Town Campus. We work to raise funds for our projects as well as for many donations such as for the Scholarship Fund at Garden Club of North Carolina, many of the gardens we visit and others in community outreach. Anyone is welcome to visit and see if we are a good fit for you! Some past club year programs include "The Art of Pressed Flowers", "Somewhere Between the Mind and the Heart", "Camellias - The Heritage Collection", "We Love Mums", "Climate Change", "Versatile Gourds" and "Don't Eat Your Vegetables!". We also have toured local area places of interest such as Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn & Garden, Camellia Forest Tea Garden at Camellia Forest Nursery, Art in Bloom at NC Museum of Art and Green Hill Hosta Farm. We meet at 10 AM on the first Thursday of the month with exceptions as noted in the CALENDAR OF EVENTS usually at the Cary Senior Center in Bond Park. Meetings are informal and attendees are always welcome to join us for lunch after the meeting at a nearby restaurant. SEE CALENDAR & EVENTS FOR COMPLETE SCHEDULE. Please contact us if you’d like to attend. Visitors are welcome to attend two club activities. Prorated dues are then payable at or prior to attending the third activity.
