Hosted by the Carteret County Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Association.
Our guest speaker will be Charlotte Glenn who is the Extension Master Gardener Volunteer State Coordinator for North Carolina. Charlotte has served as a horticulture agent with NC Cooperative Extension since 2000, working primarily with consumer horticulture and the Master Gardener Volunteer program, in Johnston, New Hanover, Pender, and Chatham Counties. Charlotte has also served as a mentor for horticulture agents across the state.
Charlotte will discuss the important role of native plants in the landscape and how to choose the right plant for any given location. She will focus on coastal plain native species and their uses in the landscape, highlighting native plants she has found to work well in residential landscapes and the conditions that best suit those plants.
For those wishing to arrive a little early, the Carteret County Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Association will be providing some snacks and coffee beginning at 9:30am.
