Oakwood Garden Club
The Oakwood Garden Club was formed in 1950 and has the distinguished honor of being one of Raleigh's oldest garden clubs. The club was formed by Oakwood residents interested in increasing their knowledge of gardening and beautifying the neighborhood.
The Garden Club founded and maintains the Vallie Henderson Park, awards Yard of the Month recognition, and hosts an Annual Garden Tour & Tea.
Monthly meetings include guest lecturers who speak on topics of interest. Meeting are held at members' houses the first Thursday of the month. All in the neighborhood are invited.
The Garden Club is a member of the SPHO, but does not receive SPHO funding. Oakwood Garden Club events and fundraisers benefit only the Garden Club and its causes.
