Outreach Projects 2023-2024
Birthplace Gardens (at the Wake Forest Historical Museum)
The Wake Forest Garden Club maintains the garden beds on the grounds of the museum. Work days are scheduled for the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 9 a.m. Members signup as stewards of a bed and can also attend to the bed at times convenient for them.
The Wake Forest Flower Cart is a working group of community volunteers who meet each Friday at St. John's Episcopal Church, 834 Durham Rd. Our dedicated group makes small flower arrangements in coffee mugs that are delivered to many confined in care facilities, and many that are home bound. We meet at 9:15 AM at the church. You are invited to join us any Friday you are available. You'll learn and enjoy making arrangements and have fun - bring a friend!
Forest Fest Saturday 20, 2024
This is a family-friendly event that celebrates the heart and history of Wake Forest. It is held annually in downtown Wake Forest. The WF Garden Club will be at our tent where we work on our goal to educate, and through demonstration of various practices such as mulching and pruning, how to make "good dirt”. We distribute seed packets and directions for good gardening practices.
Miller Park at Elm Street WF
Club members partner with the Town of Wake Forest to rehabilitate the park off of Elm Street. This ongoing project includes planting azaleas, bulbs and other native plants, and helping to maintain plantings.
Tri-Area Ministries Food Pantry
We partner with Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry to hand out container gardens. Each garden consists of one large container, a bag of dirt, plants, and seeds for fall planting, fertilizer, and instructions.
Station WCPE Grounds
The Wake Forest Garden Club is grateful for the partnership we have with WCPETheClassicalStation. We create and maintain their Pollinator Garden, while WCPE advertises the Garden Club's Garden Fundraisers.
