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 bi-weekly maintenance sessions on Thursdays, with specific dates announced in our monthly newsletter, The Leaflet.
