Duke Gardens Plant/Craft Fest Preview No. 4

Volunteers are a major part of keeping the nonprofit Sarah P. Duke Gardens functioning well and looking fabulous.

We'll write more about volunteering in a later post. But if you're interested in joining our volunteer family, call Director of Volunteers Chuck Hemric at 668-1705 or e-mail him at

Below are some devoted volunteers helping staff members prepare for Saturday's festival. The sale is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please see earlier posts for more previews.
