Charlotte Garden Club
The Charlotte Garden Club, Inc. was organized in 1924 as North Carolina's first garden club. Its purpose is to further the member's 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 at the Mint Museum of Art to share in educational lectures and entertainment by authorities in landscape design, horticulture and other topics of interest to people who enjoy gardens and/or gardening.
The Charlotte Garden Club has been an affiliate of the Mint Museums of Art since 1954. It contributes to projects designed to beautify the Museums and their 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 co-sponsoring the annual Home and Garden Tour as well as the Home and Garden Tour Symposium with the Mint Museum Auxiliary.
Projects funded by the Garden Club include the construction and continuing maintenance of the two Courtyard Gardens which are viewed from overlooking windows of the Museum's galleries, the installation of a sprinkler system on the Museum's grounds, construction and maintenance of the Terrace Garden at the Mint's entrance, providing flowering plants for the Museums' entrances and decorating the Museum for Christmas.
