The Charlotte Garden
Club was organized in
1924 as North Carolina's first garden club. Its purpose is to
further its members' knowledge of gardening through programs and
projects under the direction of experts in the fields of
horticulture and design.
Members meet one evening a month from September through May to
share in educational lectures and entertainment by authorities
in landscape design, horticulture and other topics of interest
to people who enjoy gardens and gardening.
The Charlotte Garden Club has been an Affiliate of the Mint
Museum of Art since 1954. It contributes to projects designed to
beautify the Mint Museum and its grounds as well as projects
which add to the beauty of Charlotte.
Funds for the professional landscaping of the Museum's grounds
come from the Club's sponsoring an annual Fall Bulb Sale as well
as a Spring Garden Tour and auction event.
Projects funded by the Charlotte Garden Club at the Mint Museum
of Art include the construction and continuing maintenance of
the two Courtyard Gardens which are visible from the gallery
windows; the installation of a sprinkler system on the grounds;
the construction and maintenance of the Terrace Garden at the
entrance; and Christmas decorations for the building.
