The Charlotte Garden Club has a remarkable line up of landscape legends, horticultural heroes, and innovative florists to educate and entertain you this program year. They were secured last spring, before COVID-19.
Please know that we are still hosting these experts; however, they will be virtual presentations through Zoom for the remainder of 2020. 2021 formats are to be determined.
So stay engaged with us and mark your calendars for a fabulous, yet different-than-expected year!
