As Atlanta’s oldest cultural site, Historic Oakland Cemetery offers a window into the city’s rich and fascinating history. Oakland is the final resting place for more than 70,000 souls, including many Atlanta founders and noted citizens of Georgia. This Victorian garden cemetery provides opportunities to start a dialogue about the historic past.
State Botanical Gardens
The 313-acre State Botanical Garden of Georgia in Athens is home to numerous themed display gardens including the Flower Garden, the International Garden, the Heritage Garden and the Shade Garden.
We will take a guided tour of the gardens including the new porcelain museum followed by a boxed lunch in the Terrace Room at the Garden Club of Georgia headquarters.
Additional Field Trips
We hope to organize one or two spur of the moment field trips – maybe go for a walk at the Chattahoochee River, visit Barnsley Gardens and stay for lunch or re-tour the Spalding Garden Club Butterfly Garden.
