The Durham Council of Garden Clubs was founded in 1929 in federation with the National Garden Club and The Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc.
The Council served more than eight decades as the umbrella group for garden clubs and junior garden clubs in Durham, NC. Today, Durham Garden Clubs continue the same mission of philanthropic projects of preservation, conservation, education and beautification under District 9 of the Garden Clubs of NC.

2013 Joint Meeting to Dress up Your Wardrobe, March 5
It’s that time of year again – time to get with your
gardening girlfriends from the 10 Durham Garden Clubs of the Durham Council!
The meeting will be held 10 a.m. - noon, at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 1200 W. Cornwallis Rd., Durham.
This year’s Joint Meeting is slated to be a grand tea party,
an outrageous fashion show, and a highly fascinating program by bluebird specialist, Frank Newell. Frank heads up Eastern Bluebird Rescue Group, a non-profit and whose volunteers make bluebird houses and feeders, priced $10-12.
Models are still needed for the fashion show – if you can
strut your stuff on a catwalk, please contact Joint Meeting Chair Mary Denson. (Models
desired in all sexy sizes.) Please RSVP to your club President.
Also to be raffled is a poppin' handmade quilt by a local artist, so be sure to bring your pocketbooks!
See you at the 2013 Joint Meeting and Fashion Show!
