Creating a wildlife haven one plant at a time

Talks & Tours

Tours of Southern Meadows, a private habitat garden in Northeast Georgia, are available upon request. Come explore an ecological garden using native plants, experience a garden design that provides habitat for bees, butterflies, beneficial insects, frogs, lizards, snakes, and birds and see how we are restoring our home garden into a healthy balanced ecosystem that ultimately functions as our wildlife sanctuary.
