Is there a garden club in Greenville or Pitt County? Thanks, Linda NC
Linda, there is a group that is working on a public garden over behind the Agriculture Office. You will have to check inside for a contact person. Also, Eastern NC Rose Club, contact person is in Winterville. I can find it if you would want that info.
Just moved to winterville nc Where is the Ag office??
Yes, there are several garden clubs, I believe. Call the Extension Office at 902-1709 and you should be able to get some information.
The group that works on the Ag Center gardens is the Pitt Co Master Gardener Volunteers. The Ag office is the Cooperative Extension Office on Government Circle off Old Creek Road. If I might shamelessly plug the Pitt Country Arboretum :).....there are guided walking tours on the first Thursday of every month at 10:00 a.m. (except June to Aug at 9:00 a.m. when it's cooler). There will be an Open House on Sunday, May 17 from 2:00 - 5:00.
thanks for the reply--I will be out of town for that open house weekend but I will be sure to visit the arboretum. i have moved from western New York area and am learning a whole new way of gardening here. The soil here is very different. I lived the same place for 40 years and the soil was perfect from years of composting. Now I am learning new plants and hoping my old favorite transplanted "bring alongs" will make the transition,.
