ENDOWED SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Each year the club provides a scholarship to a student in the Department of Horticulture at NC State University. The RGC Scholarship Fund is endowed with generous contributions by the RGC and its individual members. Contributions to the RGC Scholarship Fund are welcome.

JC RAULSTON ARBORETUM INTERN PROGRAM

The club donates funds to a work/study program for NC State Horticulture students to work at the Arboretum during the summer. 

The Youth Committee meets monthly (usually the first Monday) with a group of girls interested in gardening at the Raleigh Girl's Club. In 2012 the girls chose the name Rosey Girls and were registered as such with the Garden Club of North Carolina.

Before their meetings the girls usually have an early dinner and are ready to participate in activities by 4:45. RGC volunteers are encouraged to come at 4:15 to help set up. Activities are varied and have included: 

  • Maintaining a vegetable garden
  • Planting a new butterfly garden
  • Planting marigolds and learning about other natural pest repellents
  • Making decorations for various holidays to either take home or use for garden club activities
  • Learning the names of ten common flowers by using stickers with pictures on art projects

ROSEY GIRLS

In 2016 the Rosey Girls won a 1st place prize for their scrap book and were awarded 2nd place for best overall youth club by the Garden Club of North Carolina.
