A family garden club has been organized for Rural Hall and surrounding area, to help promote Rural Hall’s theme “Garden Spot of the World.” The mission of the club is “to learn and share knowledge about growing all types of plants in order to beautify the community and develop a greater appreciation for the environment.”
Topics of interest range widely and include lawn improvement, vegetable gardening, raised beds, fruit and shade trees, flower beds, landscaping, container gardening, outdoor lighting and many other ideas and activities. Men, women and children (ages 12 and up) are welcome and invited to join us!
Have you noticed the Welcome signs announcing Rural Hall? The beds around each of the three signs are weeded, planted and mulched by club members. Each sign’s display is unique with different plants. The flowers and bushes are growing and blooming in a myriad of colors! The club also plants and maintains the hanging baskets that decorate the utility poles at town square and town hall.
To support these projects, the club holds a spring plant sale each year. Potted plants, daylilies, irises, peonies, hibiscus, ferns, foxgloves, herbs and many other plants will be available. Come out and support the club’s fundraiser and help make our community truly the “Garden Spot of the World”.
Dues for the club are a cost of $10/year per individual and $15/year per family.
Our meetings are now held the 4th MONDAY of the month at 7PM at the Nazareth Lutheran Church (460 Bethania-Rural Hall Rd) through the fall/winter months and at a member’s garden or the picnic shelter at Covington Park during the months of May through September. We usually have a variety of speakers during cooler months, and visit local gardens during spring and summer. Come join us in the garden!
