Join the volunteer crew on Tuesday March 19, the first day of spring!  Celebrate spring, learn about native plants, and engage with a community of plant lovers and conservationists.

Event Details

Dates: March 19 
Time: Meet at 9AM.
Location: Pickens County History Museum, 307 Johnson St, Pickens, SC 29671

As spring unfolds, the garden’s early bloomers, such as the Creeping Phlox and Green and Gold, are already in spectacular bloom. Volunteering at this event is not only about gardening but also is a great way to see the plants in all stages of growth and to learn about growing SC native plants.

A Collaborative Effort

The garden is a collective project supported by the South Carolina Native Plant Society, Master Gardeners of the Foothills, and the Upstate Master Naturalist Association. These groups come together to maintain and enhance the garden, creating a beautiful space for the community to enjoy.
