Martha Franck Fragrance Garden

This unique 1.1 acre garden is on the campus of the Governor Morehead School for the Blind in Raleigh, and has been a cooperative project between the school and The Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc. since 1960.  It is used as an outdoor classroom that allows visually impaired students and those with multiple physical challenges to experience scent, sound, and touch.  Signage and labeling throughout the garden is done in Braille or raised letters.

In 1997 The Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc. designated the Martha Franck Garden as its official South Atlantic Region Unified State Project.  The GCNC is committed to the completion of this project.  To date, the Garden is a work-in-progress with sponsoring leadership, fundraising, and volunteer labor  provided by GCNC members.
