Old Mason Farm Road off 15/501
In addition to the eight private gardens open to visit on tour days, this very special public garden is open for your enjoyment almost every day. As a center for education and plant interpretation, its impact reaches far beyond the 600 acres of land devoted to research activities and habitat preservation. From humble beginnings in the 1950’s, it has become a diverse organization offering exciting opportunities for both community and personal enrichment. The North Carolina Botanical Garden is part of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the main beneficiary of our tour proceeds. The Chapel Hill Garden Club proudly celebrates our continued partnership with this local treasure. The recently completed Education Center building has many novel green features. Take time to visit the gift shop and the Garden’s annual native plant sale. Guests may wander through plant collections and habitat gardens, the horticultural therapy demonstration garden, the herb garden, and the fern collection.
