The Abundant Garden And Homestead

  • Decatur Residence - address emailed to participants (map)

Learn to make use every inch of your yard for beauty, food and relaxation during a personal tour of the abundant garden of Anne-Marie Anderson, The Celtic Gardener. Graze on food plants while exploring how to make nature your partner and ally: using materials generated on site, incorporating chickens for waste disposal and compost, and bees for pollination and honey.

The tour will include advice on making the most of steep slopes, full sun, full shade and removing invasive species. DeKalb county master gardener and certified beekeeper Anne-Marie’s gardens were featured on the 2013 Decatur Garden Tour and the 2011 Urban Coop Tour. She speaks regularly to local groups about edibles, natives, Southern heirloom plants, chickens and beekeeping.

LOCATION INFO: Address of this Decatur-area home will be emailed to participants a few days before the event.
