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.

Keep Durham Beautiful seeks applications for its Community Beautification Grant Program. Durham-based residents, volunteer groups, non-profit organizations, businesses and educators looking to make a difference in Durham’s appearance are encouraged to apply for these semi-annual grants.
We will award competitive grants of up to $500 each to support well-defined projects that support our key objectives to reduce litter, encourage recycling, and promote community greening through tree and garden planting. “This program is a perfect example of public-private-community partnerships in action,” said executive director Tania Dautlick. “Pooling resources, Keep Durham Beautiful volunteers accomplish amazing transformations.”
The date to submit Grant Applications for the spring funding cycle is January 31, 2016. The next round of applications will be due by July 31, 2016.
