Demonstration Garden at NC State Fair

(The NC State Fair runs from Oct 12 - 21. We man the garden in the daylight hours from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. We ask for volunteers to man the garden for 2 hour slots.)
Event Sponsor: Margaret Reid Chapter

The Triangle Chapter has created and maintained a permanent garden of NC native plants to educate and delight fair goers since 2007. We man the garden during the Fair each October and ask for volunteers to take two-hour slots. In exchange, the Fair gives the volunteer a free ticket and a parking pass.
