    “Caught in a Trap!”
    Carnivorous plants attract insects to their traps and current trends show that with their mass appeal, these plants will attract visitors to the Garden.
    Check out this interesting project on power2give.org/fayetteville. Every dollar that you give will be matched 50% by the Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County.
    Once our goal is met and the garden boxes built, you will be fascinated while watching Venus flytraps and Pitcher plants luring, catching, killing and digesting their prey. No worries for humans, Carnivorous plants generally stick to a diet of bugs!
