Cape Fear Botanical Garden

Special Program for Senior Veterans

Earlier this year, Cape Fear Botanical Garden received a generous grant from Home Instead Senior Care. This grant created the opportunity for senior veterans (55 and better) to enjoy a free series of adaptive Therapeutic Horticulture gardening classes. Unfortunately, these group classes had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. However, Cape Fear Botanical Garden has an alternative gardening opportunity for you! Senior. Veterans can pick up a FREE garden kit from the Garden Gift Shop, spend an hour individually (with a companion) in the Garden for a socially-distanced gardening class, or speak by phone or a garden consultation.

If you would like to participate in this program or know a Senior Veteran who would like to participate, please email Amy Stidham, CFBG Therapeutic Horticulture Program Manager at to sign up!

Cape Fear Botanical Garden has several programs for Seniors. If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about the Garden, check out the Garden’s website: or call 910-486-0221, ext. 42.
