Bamboo Farm and Coastal Gardens Announces
14th Annual Fall Festival
on October 25, 2008
Savannah, GA
-- Pictures-- Pictures-- People looking for a family-friendly outdoor activity this fall should plan to visit the Bamboo Farm and Coastal Gardens’ Fall Festival Saturday, October 25, from 9 am to 4 pm. Sponsored by the Friends of Coastal Gardens, this fund-raising event includes educational lectures on plants and gardening, activities for children, plant vendors, arts and crafts vendors, garden tours with experienced guides and a pumpkin patch where you can buy a locally-grown Halloween pumpkin. Visitors can watch sugar cane stalks grown on the Bamboo Farm crushed, strained and boiled into pure cane syrup, which will be available for sale. Admission to the festival is free but there will be a $2 charge for parking. Some activities are free while others have a small charge.
Visitors to the 50-acre Bamboo Farm will experience one of Savannah’s hidden treasures. In 2006 the Bamboo Farm was chosen by readers of the Savannah Morning News as one of the 10 best attractions in Chatham County. Display gardens, bamboo groves, pick-your-own strawberries and blackberries in season, places to picnic and to walk are to be found in this historic site. Nationally known for the bamboo collection and palm collection, the farm is now developing an extensive camellia garden with the help of the southeast camellia society. Recently the Farm drew public attention for research into growing bananas in the local area.
