North Carolina Cooperative Extension (NC Co-Op) is a valued partner of the Brunswick County Habitat for Humanity (BCHFH). For several years now, the Brunswick County NC Co-Op has donated all of the landscaping materials for each new partner family home plus helps install it all along side our partner families! Brunswick County NC Co-Op representative Tom Woods said “NC Co-Op is pleased to partner with BCHFH and looks forward to collaborating with BCHFH for our future homes & neighborhoods.”
Each partner family is matched with a Master Gardner who helps draw up a landscaping design centered around the homeowner’s outdoor needs, environmentally friendly plants and the climate in our area. Then NC Co-Op purchases the needed materials, plants, flowers and greenery and schedules a day to have a coordinated team landscape event. On the day of the event, the Master Gardner, partner family, friends, Habitat employees, community volunteers and NC Co-Op gather at the Partner Family’s home and transform the landscaping from paper to real life!
Brunswick County Habitat for Humanity is grateful for this wonderful partnership with North Carolina Cooperative Extension!
