Pam Beck Showcases North Carolina

Gardens at the August GWC Meeting

Ask award-winning Wake Forest garden writer, photographer and lecturer Pam Beck what’s difficult about preparing a presentation on North Carolina’s outstanding private and public gardens and she’ll say “limiting the number.”

“The Tar Heel State,” according to Beck, “is blessed with both excellent gardens and passionate gardeners so the hardest part of putting together a talk like this one is leaving some of them out.”

What she’ll offer at the GWC August meeting is called “Nothing Could Be Finer,” a colorful garden travelogue with occasional introductions to the talented people behind their creation. “We’ll begin at the sandy coast,” she says, “then hopscotch up, down and across the Old North State…peeking into all types of gardens…until we wind up in the high mountains.”

For GWC members who appreciate fine gardens and love North Carolina, Nothing Could Be Finer promises to be a thoroughly enjoyable lecture.
