Come to a Garden Party!

“Garden Party” can bring many images to mind, from fancy hats to fragrant foliage.  Our idea of a Garden Party is less frilly and more down-to-earth.  This Saturday, C3 is excited to sponsor a seedling activity at a great Garden Party event sponsored by Carolina Parent!

This event is special to us for many reasons.  We want to be a more visible presence in our community.  This Garden Party provides the opportunity to show how environmental awareness fosters creativity.  It’s that dual benefit, that win-win, that fuels everything we do at C3.  At the Garden Party, kids will repurpose toilet paper rolls into carriers for seedlings, which will be easy to take home and put in the ground.  They will also decorate plant markers made from reuse materials.  (Thank you to everyone who has ever donated tp and paper towel rolls!)

C3 is proud to participate along with these like-minded organizations:  Brooks Contractors will supply mulch for the seedlings; AC Moore will provide arts and crafts, and Richards McDonald’s Advantage group is generously hosting and facilitating this Garden Party.

This Saturday will be a triple tap for Garden Parties!  C3 is hosting a Garden & Mulch Morning starting at 8:00 AM to spruce up our grounds and plant an edible landscape garden.  C3 will also be at Waverly Farmers’ Market at Waverly Place in Cary on Saturday morning with a fun and easy reuse craft project for the kids.  Make plans to stop by one or all of these great community events!


Thanks to the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation, your donations to the C3 Raise the Roof Campaign are matched dollar for dollar up to $2,500.  We want to maximize the opportunity to multiply financial gifts.  Please help us promote positive and lasting change here in our local community!   Your generous monetary gifts to C3 Raise the Roof Campaign will help establish us in a new location so C3 can become a greater community resource!  Every gift makes a difference!
