Town & Country Garden Club

At it’s February 9 meeting, the Town & Country Garden Club unanimously approved the recommendation by it’s Beautification/Projects committee to allocate $18,000  to the Hub Farm for the Front Entry Gardens.

The Durham Public School’s Hub Farm is a 30 acre woodland, aquatic and farm habitat whose mission is to engage Durham county school students in all aspects of food production, as well as land stewardship, to foster healthy living, career exploration, environmental stewardship and community engagement. 

Several of our members have visited the Hub Farm already and we are excited to be holding our September meeting there as well.  Check out Hub Farm/Durham to learn more. We are indeed grateful to all the wonderful supporters of our November Awesome Auction who facilitated this record-setting year for our club.
