Cape Fear Garden Club supports CFCC
The Cape Fear Garden Club recently donated $3,000 to Cape Fear Community College to support the expansion of the educational gardens at CFCC’s North Campus in Castle Hayne and to create an educational apothecary garden at the Downtown Wilmington Campus.
The Cape Fear Garden Club’s donation will enhance the existing landscape gardening facilities at CFCC’s North Campus. In addition, the grant will help fund a collaborative endeavor between the Landscape Gardening Program and the Pharmacy Technology Program. Students in the Landscape Gardening Program will have the opportunity to design, plan, plant and maintain the apothecary garden. Pharmacy Technology students will be able to research the medicinal use of plants that can be successfully grown in the Wilmington area.
The Cape Fear Garden Club is the oldest and largest garden club in North Carolina and among the largest garden clubs in the nation. The organization is best known for creating the annual Cape Fear Garden Club Azalea Garden Tour, which features the finest and most exquisite gardens in the Wilmington area. Each year, The Cape Fear Garden Club awards thousands of dollars in grants for beautification, conservation, and educational projects.
