The Charlotte Garden Club was established in 1924 and is the oldest garden club in North Carolina. In 1954, it became the first affiliate of The Mint Museum. The Garden Club’s mission is to encourage the love and knowledge of all aspects of gardening, horticulture, and the artistic use of growing things through educational programs, garden tours, and related community projects. Programs bring nationally recognized experts and regional authorities in horticulture and landscape design to the Mint. Community projects include maintenance of gardens and plantings at the Mint; landscaping of Habitat for Humanity homes; and support for the Billingsville Elementary School garden. The Charlotte Garden Club’s major fundraiser is the Art in the Garden tour. Held in April, the two-day event features a tour of Charlotte gardens with plein-air artists painting in each one.
