Croasdaile Junior Garden Club Celebrates Spring with Nature Programs

Fall bulb planting.
The Croasdaile Junior Garden Club, consisting of the Special Needs Class at Riverside High School of Durham, and supervised by the Croasdaile Garden Club, has had a creative and busy school year.

In October the Junior Garden Club planted fall bulbs and pansies on the school grounds, then decorated gingerbread houses for Christmas, and made peanut butter and millet pinecone birdfeeders during February frosts. The Croasdaile Garden Clubs will next fly kites together this spring.

The Croasdaile Garden Club has sponsored the Junior Garden Club for 18 years and was organized by Garden Club Member Linda Stewart. Stewart was recognized as the 2015 triple crown winner of the "Member Award of Honor" by The Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc., the Southeast Atlantic Region (SAR) and the National Garden Club for her years of creating the garden therapy program for special needs children at Riverside High School.
