Good luck on your new path.
Danny Lauderdale is moving on to his new career, so it's time to reluctantly say goodbye.  The Arboretum was his vision.  He planned gardens around a nondescript public building creating a beautiful, living showcase that also was a place to learn.

Danny is an educator for the professionals and home gardeners.  He patiently led our large, diverse group of Master Gardener Volunteers.  He brought us all together to focus on the single goal of learning all we could about proper gardening techniques.

He had many titles and duties while at the Pitt County Extension Office, but the one he will always carry is friend.  Farewell, Friend.  Please visit.  After all, we'll just be continuing to perfect your Arboretum.
