Folkmoot center gardens get TLC

Written by 

out folkmootgardensMain Street Waynesville wasn’t the only place to get a spit and polish before visitors and performers from around the world arrived for Folkmoot USA.  The Richland Creek Garden Club, Waynesville’s first garden club, spruced up the Folkmoot Friendship Center gardens with new flowers, native plants and a good weeding. 


The group planted flowers at the entrance to the Folkmoot center, focusing on native plantings to show off the floral beauty that is part of Western North Carolina’s culture and heritage. The group also performed much-needed maintenance of the established plantings in front of the center. The Richland Garden Club, named after Richland Creek, was established in 1949 as the first garden club in the Waynesville area and still maintains many garden plots and plantings in town.

“Even though our primary purpose is to provide a forum for members to learn more about horticulture, gardening, and how to put what we grow to its best use, I also want to inspire members to put that knowledge into practice and take it into our community,” said club President Patty Felder.

    art theplaceMonday is the new Saturday. Heading down Frazier Street in Waynesville to BearWaters Brewing Company, one can barely find a place to park on a typical Monday evening. For the last couple of months, the location has played host to a weekly open mic event called the Spontaneous CombustJam.
