Join the Alyson Pond Garden Club Friday, September 24, 2010 as it makes its field trip to Duke Gardens. Through special arrangement, the club will receive a private tour by one of the garden’s docents. Then, immediately afterward we will be joining the Friends of Duke Gardens preview of the 2010 Plant and Craft Festival.
The Gardens and other vendors will offer for sale an array of plants appropriate for this region, including plants featured in Duke Gardens and rare and native species. Local artisans will sell garden-related gift items. And you can also get free horticultural advice from our staff and Durham County Master Gardeners.
Sarah P. Duke Gardens provides a place where people of all backgrounds and ages come for beauty, education, horticulture, solitude, discovery, study, renewal and inspiration.
