Sunday in the Garden and More from Woodlands Garden

Ruby Bock shares all the fun activities at  Woodlands this weekend. Take a stroll or ride your bicycle over to the Garden for opportunities to have fun in the great fall weather.

Sunday in the Garden with Musical Surprises

This coming Sunday, October 21, 2-4pm, we’re quite pleased to welcome, for the first time, Allison Adams and Friends. Allison is a songwriter, singer, guitarist, mandolinist, ukulelist, and concertinist who has been making music on Atlanta’s acoustic scene for more than a decade. Her debut solo release, Redbud Winter, won her a slot as a finalist in the South Florida Folk Festival Singer-Songwriter Competition in 2008, and these days she is hard at work recording her second CD, The Strawberry Girls. Allison’s music is influenced by sounds she heard growing up in Rabun County, from local bluegrass and traditional music and a lot of southern rock, to her father’s Grandpa Jones albums and her mother’s The Sound of Music soundtrack.

On October 28, for the grand finale of the musical season, we look forward to hearing Danny Feig-Sandoval and Friends. Danny seems to have a lot of them – friends, that is – and we hear that they’re working up a good show.  Details will be announced next week.

 Sunday, October 21 – 4:30-6pm – Guided Autumn Stroll and Tree Identification

Woodlands has again partnered with the Wylde Center to offer a special class: Robby Astrove, environmental educator, native plant enthusiast and park ranger at Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve, will lead a walk through Woodlands under the changing fall canopy. We’ll learn to identify trees and shrubs, and Robby will tell us some stories about some of his favorite plants.
