Explore the Charlotte Brody Discovery Garden
A sustainable garden area opens this month at Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham. The Charlotte Brody Discovery Garden hosts a grand-opening celebration Sept. 8 and 9, noon-3 p.m. The garden is named after a gardener and columnist who spent years educating people about organic foods and gardening for a healthier lifestyle.
