Spring Farm Day
Nature newbies and nature lovers of all ages, please join us for an open farm day on Sunday, April 2nd from 10 am to 3 pm. Bring a picnic and linger by the creek, then walk the numerous trails to see the glory of spring! The natural landscape of wildflowers, trees, and shrubs along the banks of Lookout Creek and nestled in the woods of the forest are a sight to see this time of year. We invite you to come and step into the wonderland of nature’s rebirth.
We will also be offering the following interactive walks throughout the day for you to enjoy:
10:15 a.m. and 1 p.m. – Rich Reaves from the Georgia Botanical Society will be leading a cohort for their annual interpretive walk. These walks will be paced slowly to take in the spring ephemerals with the opportunity for photographs. The morning and afternoon walks will be in different locations on the farm.
11 a.m. – Leah Larabell from High Garden Tea will be leading a medicinal plant walk with an interactive, 5 senses focus. This medicinal plant walk will be approximately 1 hour.
1 p.m. – Karen Persinger, Amanda G. Verkest, and Lexy Vogel from Rising Fawn Gardens will be leading a tour of the farm with a focus on land conservation and ecosystems. This tour will be approximately one hour and includes a moderate hike.
Spaces for these activities are limited and will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please select the activities you would like to join during the registration process and understand they may fill up quickly.
There will be a wild food and herbal tea tasting around noon that will be open to anyone who’d like to join!
This is a family-friendly and pet-friendly event. If you would like to bring your pet, we kindly request that they remain on a leash while at the farm.
Bring a camp chair for sitting by the creek, a yummy picnic, and your favorite wildflower app or guidebook as you meander and explore along the creek and through the woods.
The farm gate will be open from 10 am to 3 pm
