Cape Fear Community College’s Landscape Gardening and Horticulture Science program has been in a partnership with Maides Park for over two years.

In that timeframe, new garden beds have been installed, vegetable plants have been donated, and after school children and seniors at Maides Park have participated in numerous nutrition and gardening workshops.

Currently, the Landscape Gardening and Horticulture Science Program is installing a Pollinator Garden at Maides Park. This garden will serve as an environmental education piece for the after school kids. The after school kids will learn about native wildlife including birds and insects, as well as what purpose pollinating plants serve. Please stay tuned for the final result!
