The Middleburg Garden Club closed out its club year with a covered dish luncheon May 13 at the Lamplighter Inn.

New officers were installed, and ideas and activities were discussed for the upcoming year.

A presentation was given on problems associated with pesticides in food and local farms that deliver organic vegetables.

Earlier in May, several members attended the 10th Chapel Hill Spring Garden Tour featuring the Carolina Campus Community Garden, the North Carolina Botanical Garden and seven private gardens in Chapel Hill. Proceeds from the tour will help build the Children’s Wonder Garden at the North Carolina Botanical Garden.

The club selected the yard at the home of Leigh Ann and Frank Edwards in Middleburg as its second Yard of the Season.
