The Trent Woods Garden Club volunteers were busy spreading holiday cheer with all of Trent Woods on Sunday, December 5, 2021. Arriving in four convertibles with the tops down, everyone spent the afternoon wishing all who lined the parade route a very merry Christmas. The theme of this year’s parade was “Paws.” Monty Tallman, on what happened to be his sixth birthday, acted as TWGC’s Ambassadog to the Trent Woods community.
The Trent Woods Garden Club (TWGC) is committed to bringing garden and nature beauty, education, and civic development to the greater New Bern area. The TWGC is a member of the National Garden Clubs, Inc and The Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc.

The Bees is our Youth Gardener in-school program for local second graders. Members visit the school monthly the during the school year. Volunteers from TWGC provide the children with a hands-on experience growing plants and instilling a love of nature.
At Garden Therapy, volunteer members visit a local nursing home to spread cheer, fellowship, and a love of plants. Monthly craft projects are geared to bring a small bit of joy to our local elderly or infirm neighbors. TWGC also hosts an annual Herb Sale to raise funds for our scholarships and various civic programs. TWGC provides two scholarships to graduating Craven County seniors studying agriculture at college every year. TWGC members believe that scholarships are a bedrock of providing our local youth with the advantage of a higher education.
