What's Happening:                         

Guests will be given a guided tour of the 125 acre native plant farm by our very own Georgia Piedmont Wild One’s expert Tanner Biggers. By the time you leave, you’ll know what plants are in bloom, where they grow and what pollinators they support. In addition, you’ll witness butterflies and bees pollinating, see some really cool birds, and relax to the sounds of nature.

Conoclinium coeslestinum, Blue Mistflower.
Hibiscus grandiflorus, Velvet Mallow.

What to Bring:

  • Comfortable walking shoes
  • Bug repellent
  • Sunscreen
  • Lunch
  • Water
  • Curiosity!
Please arrive at 12 at Beech Hollow at 1575 Elberton Rd, Lexington, GA. Meet under the “Wild One’s” banner by the parking lot. Here you can check out the pollinator and flower handouts, sign in at the Wild Ones table, as well as sign up for more Wild Ones' activities and events.  Join us for some short introductions before we start the tour at 12:15 in the Sun Garden.  This tour is completely outdoors so plan accordingly. Photography welcome.
After a 30-40 minute tour in the Sun Beds, we will take a lunch break with a presentation and refreshments in the Blue Barn. Drinks and snacks will be provided, and we strongly encourage everyone to wear a mask while indoors, and bring their own lunch. After lunch, we will tour the Shade Garden.
Later, about 2 pm, you can browse the retail area of the nursery, or there will be an optional 45 minute round-trip hike to the magnificent beech tree grove, which gave Beech Hollow Farms its name. We are so excited to get to meet you, and to join you on a walk through wildflowers!
