Preserving native rhododendron and azalea
The mission of Project Branch Out is to propagate rare and native flora of Western North Carolina and provide educational opportunities for local students, growers, and plant enthusiasts. Helping farmers create a cash crop that serves as an alternative to raising tobacco or Christmas trees was the driving force behind the creation of Project Branch Out.
