RGC members help the Garden Club of North Carolina maintain the Martha Franck Fragrance Garden on the campus of the Governor Morehead School for the Blind in Raleigh.  This unique 1.1-acre garden is used as an outdoor classroom that allows visually impaired students and those with multiple physical challenges to experience scent, sound, and touch. Signage and labeling throughout the garden is done in Braille or raised letters. The garden has been a cooperative project between the school and The Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc. since 1960.

We have maintenance sessions biweekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with dates announced here and in The Leaflet.  If you’d like to participate, let the committee chairs know which date(s) work best for you.

Bring your gloves, tools and energy and join us to work on weeding, pruning, and thinning plants in the garden!
