Visiting Georgia’s New Woodland Garden
Posted on January 30, 2016 by Stacy Anthony
We’re always on the go at St. George Village, exploring destinations near and far! Some of us recently visited Atlanta Botanical Garden’s new location in Gainesville, Ga., featuring a sophisticated horticultural operation and the largest conservation nursery in the Southeast. Located on land donated by Charles and Lessie Smithgall, the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Gainesville is destined to be one of the largest and most diverse woodland gardens in the country.
Pictured above are (l-r) Kay Briggs, Christine Potter, Dottie Belser, Janet Marsden, Louis and Marianne Vogel, part of our group who enjoyed seeing the Garden’s welcome center, outdoor gardens, a model train garden and an amphitheater during their visit.
