Just one month away…..National Garden Week: June 4-10, 2017
 
It is not too late to “Leap into Action” and become engaged in National Garden Week designated June 4-10 by Sandra Robinson, NGC President. I urge you to mark the date on your calendar and celebrate gardening in your community. A resource I recommend is the NGC’s website www.gardenclub.org/projects/national-garden-week.aspx  which has an array of activities devoted to promoting this ongoing project. National Garden Week provides our clubs a meaningful opportunity to continue “Growing Forward Together” as encouraged by our State President, Gail Hill.
 
In addition, I suggest that you submit your actions for achieving the National Garden Week Award. A description for this award is found on page 33 in the current Gardener. Please contact me if I can be of further assistance.

April Showers Bring NC Wildflowers

Annual awards honor state’s best-looking blooms

RALEIGH – For more than 30 years, the N.C. Department of Transportation’s Wildflower Program has enhanced the overall appearance and environmental quality of the state’s highways. On Wednesday, the Garden Club of North Carolina and NCDOT presented the annual Wildflower Awards program at First Baptist Church in downtown Raleigh.

Wildflower beds are installed and maintained across the state by Roadside Environmental personnel in each of the 14 highway divisions. Awards were given to the best-looking flower beds in each region, as well as the best overall highway division wildflower program.

“From improving the environment to encouraging economic development and tourism, the Wildflower Program not only makes our roadways more attractive, but it also contributes to North Carolina’s overall quality of life,” said Transportation Secretary Jim Trogdon.

Nearly 200 people attended the awards program, including first lady of North Carolina Kristin Cooper.

The Wildflower Awards were given for beds that bloomed in 2016. The winners are:

Best Overall Division Wildflower Program:

•First Place – Division 11, which includes Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Caldwell, Surry, Watauga, Wilkes and Yadkin counties.

•Second Place – Division 4, which includes Edgecombe, Halifax, Johnston, Nash, Wayne and Wilson counties.
