About Botanic Garden at Georgia Southern University
The Garden features over 11 acres of gardens on the early twentieth century farmstead of Dan and Catharine Bland. The Garden offers woodland trails, a landscape garden of coastal plain natives, a native azalea collection, an arboretum, a children’s garden, a complex of early 20th century farm buildings, the Rural Life Museum, the Whelchel Camellia Garden, heritage gardens, a bog and sandhill, and the Kennedy Outdoor Classroom.
The Garden offers several beautiful venues for events of all types and number of attendees. From an intimate gathering under the Live Oak, to a Magnolia Allee wedding, to a joyful reception that spills from the Heritage Pavilion out onto the Concert Lawn, our Facility Rental Coordinator will be happy to work with you to find the Garden location that best meets your needs.
