SOUTHERN PINES GARDEN CLUB
Supporting local horticultural education and beautification projects since 1948.
Our 75 th Year of the Home & Garden Tour is Abloom!
Our April 15th tour combines 175 years of Sandhills history!
The Southern Pines Garden Club is hosting its annual Home & Garden Tour on April 15th, and the proceeds will go towards the restoration of pastureland surrounding the recently renovated barn and stable area at the 100-year-old Weymouth Center. This is not simply a beautification project, it’s also a landscaping necessity to complete the facility’s readiness to begin a youth riding program in partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills.
This year’s tour is noteworthy for its collection of approachable “idea” houses and home gardens bound to inspire. From the dramatic color schemes of a remodeled kitchen to a recently completed two-level covered terrace, from the curated plantings of a patio in miniature to a one-acre garden of exotic shrubs and perennials, the tour may prompt your own home and garden project with its glimpse into 2023’s selection of houses. Tickets are $25 online.

Bringing the Horses Back to Weymouth
Proceeds from this year's tour will fund the restoration of the pasture and landscape surrounding the recently renovated barn and stable area at Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities to facilitate the opening of a youth afterschool riding program with the Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills called Weymouth Equestrians.
For 75 years the Southern Pines Garden Club’s annual tour dollars have closed the loop to make good things happen, and to return the fields and paddock areas back to the condition needed to begin Weymouth Equestrians, a six-week curriculum teaching basic horsemanship to underserved children, is just the latest example of our garden club’s community initiatives.
You can read more about this fabulous project in "A Legacy of Horsemanship" by Elizabeth N. Sugg found in the March/April 2023 edition of Pinehurst Living Magazine. [PDF copy]
