Lily Walk at Beech Hollow Farm

06/03/23   11-2:00 pm Tanner Biggers

First things first:

You asked for it...Tanner and I are going to make it happen.   Over the past year many of our Habitat Gardeners have asked if they could come to the farm for a hike.  We heard you ask, and we have an answer: The two of us have scheduled a few different walks through the gardens and the Beech Grove.

Last year we had 32 folks come out for the Wild Ones walk.  To make sure we have enough Beech Hollow folks to take care of all of you, we are issuing RSVP's for the walks.

Walking On:                         

After a brief introduction to Beech Hollow, our Nursery Manager, Tanner Biggers, will lead the group on a facilitated tour of the sun beds, the shade beds and to see whats popping up in the green house.

Tanner plans on giving a talk about Georgia Wildflowers at lunch in the Blue Barn.  After the lunch, anyone in the  group who wants to join in a hike down to the Beech Grove, and through the forest, is welcome.
