Athens is home to America's first garden club, so it’s no surprise that we have a number of beautiful gardens that are open to the public… although you might not know that some of them are there. Join Dr. Wilf Nichols, Director Emeritus of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, as he leads us on a virtual tour of Athens public gardens. Presented by Reflecting, Sharing, Learning.
