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 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 Northwoods Elementary School, Hillcrest Cemetery, the "Dirt Devils" produce garden for DORCAS MINISTRIES & Inter-Faith Food Banks, Cary's new Pollinator Garden at Page Walker and Interact . 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 the Scholarship Fund at Garden Club of North Carolina, many of the gardens we visit and many others in community outreach including Cary High School Marching Band for their 11/16 trip to Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Anyone is welcome to visit and see if we are a good fit for you! Some past club year programs include"Raising Healthy Roses", "Decorate with Magnolia Leaves" and "Health Issues Relating to Gardening - the Good, the Bad & the Ugly". We also have toured local area gardens such as Raleigh Rose Garden, Cape Fear Botanical Garden, Atlantic Ave. Garden & Orchid Center: and Mordecai Historic Park & Garden. 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.
