The Strawberry Fields
For a family friendly outdoor activity this spring one should plan to visit the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens at the Historic Bamboo Farm Spring Garden and Art Festival. The 50 acre Bamboo Farm is one of Savannah’s horticultural treasures. One will find display gardens, bamboo groves, pick-your-own strawberries and blackberries in season, places to picnic and to walk and a Banana grove.

Go Bananas!
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. The Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens at the Historic Bamboo Farm is located at the intersection of U. S. 17 South and Canebrake Road.



Banana 










Each stalk produces one huge flower cluster and then dies. 
New stalks then grow from the rhizome.
