Are you looking for a unique gift for the gardener on your list?  Here are two things to consider:
1)  A year membership in 'Friends of the Arboretum'.  Friends enjoy several benefits including discounts to local gardening centers, access to hundreds of gardening books in our library, newsletters, and a special invitation to shop early at our annual plant sale.  Memberships start at $20 per year and are tax-deductible.

2)  Tickets to an upcoming event "Love, Peace, and Pearl Fryar" which will be January 29, 2011 from 9 AM to Noon at the Pitt County Agricultural Center Auditorium.  The morning will begin with refreshments and a chance to visit our sponsors booths.  Then from 10 AM to Noon, Pearl will speak, answer questions, and create topiaries.  Visit to learn more about this inspiring individual.  The cost is $10 General Admission/$5 for Friends of the Arboretum.

Call 252-902-1709 for more information about either of these.
Why not gift yourself, too?
