N.C. Cooperative Extension Demonstration Gardens are teaching gardens the public is invited to explore. They have signage identifying plants that were selected to thrive in the region. Many feature gardens with specific themes including pollinator gardens, shade gardens, vegetable gardens, composting stations, and more. Some offer tours and workshops in the garden.

NC State’s JC Raulston Arboretum is a nationally acclaimed garden with one of the largest and most diverse collections of landscape plants adapted for landscape use in the Southeast. Plants especially adapted to Piedmont North Carolina conditions are collected and evaluated in an effort to find superior plants for use in southern landscapes. Explore the garden for free. Attend special events, workshops, and featured speakers.
