Outreach

Beech Hollow Farms works with communities and organizations to restore native habitat in both public and private greenspaces.  Our team regularly leads volunteers in the installation of pollinator gardens, provides consultation for native plant installations and offers educational opportunities about pollinator support, native Georgia plants and habitat restoration.

How to get involved

Interested in working together with Beech Hollow Farms to create or restore a public greenspace? Volunteer days are focused on furthering the health of public green spaces in the Atlanta and surrounding areas. Together we will work in public and community gardens, public parks and other public green spaces to establish pollinator gardens, install native plants, remove harmful invasive species, beautify with native wildflowers and shrubs and restore the health of our neighborhood habitats.

Community project: new Blue Bird house installed at the Freedom Park Bird and Butterfly Garden.
Cub Scout Pack 586 preparing to plant.

About Volunteer Days:
Each posted volunteer day will run from 9 am to 12 noon, and will start with a bit of learning about native plants and their natural communities. We will learn what plants provide larval host support for butterflies, which plants have nectar and pollen for native bees, and which plants provide important forage and shelter for migratory birds. We will also touch on the history of the native plant garden with its human community! After that info warm up, we will weed, mulch and plant as the volunteer day allows.
