Make Your Own Holiday Arrangement With The Charlotte Garden Club

The Charlotte Garden Club was organized in 1924 as North Carolina’s first garden club. Their Mission is to “encourage the love and knowledge of all aspects of gardening, horticulture and the artistic use of growing things through educational programs, garden tours and related community projects.”  This month, learn how to make your own HOLIDAY ARRANGEMENT.  Or, perhaps, just buy one during our auction. Join us as Jeff Drum demonstrates how to make your own holiday arrangements. Judy Bratton will be our auctioneer for the evening. Bring CASH or a CHECK, if you want to bid on a HOLIDAY ARRANGEMENT.

ARRIVE EARLY, the Mint’s Museum Shop will be open 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm to help you with your holiday shopping list.

This program is FREE and open to the public. Meetings are held at the Mint Museum Randolph. Refreshments are served at 7 p.m., programs begin at 7:30 p.m.   Next Meeting, Monday, December 1, 2014

Speaker: Jeff Drum, garden curator, from the Historic Rosedale Plantation, Charlotte NC

The members meet once a month from September through May at The Mint Museum on Randolph Road.  There is a different speaker each month on all kinds of garden related topics. April marks the annual Art in the Garden Tour each year.  In October, they celebrated their 90th anniversary with a 1920’s themed party.  In addition, members give back to the community with volunteer work with Billingsley Elementary School, Habitat for Humanity, as well as improving the Museum Grounds. This club is a good fit for the beginning gardener, as well as the more experienced one. Come make some new friends and get your hands dirty!
