In May, Currituck County Extension Master Gardener Volunteers, N.C. Cooperative Extension Staff, and special guests gathered at an outdoor celebration to dedicate and officially open the Currituck Demonstration Garden to visitors and county residents. This “Kaleidoscope Style” garden is a teaching garden displaying landscape design options arranged by color. Each portion of the round garden space is dedicated to a different landscape color pairing. The garden was designed this way to demonstrate and teach visitors about plant selection for our area and how to achieve a desired color scheme in their own home landscapes. The garden is located between the Currituck County Senior Center and N.C. Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center at 120 Community Way, Barco, NC.

The Currituck Demonstration Garden is the result of many years of planning and vision involving the Currituck County Extension Master Gardener Volunteers, Currituck County Planning Department, and N.C. Cooperative Extension Staff. As part of the dedication ceremony, several community members were remembered with a tree honoring their commitment to the garden and to the Currituck County Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program. The individuals memorialized were Elizabeth Dodd, Cliff Shuler, Jim Martin, and Mary Comito. A fountain dedication was made in honor of Jan Perry-Weber, retired Extension Agriculture Technician, who was instrumental in the creation of this garden space.

The public is invited to visit and enjoy the gardens at any time. Come for some gardening tips, stay for the peace and quiet, and leave with an appreciation of nature. For more information about the teaching gardens, Extension events, or the Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program, please contact Sarah Watts at or call 252-232-2262.
