Research is uniquely meshed with education in the Research and Education Garden on the UGA Griffin Campus. Research topics are focused on development and evaluation of plant cultivars and varieties, pest management tactics, and environmentally sound landscape management practices for Southern landscapes. Results from these research projects are often incorporated into our beautiful theme gardens within the Demonstration Areas for visitors to view and experience. Educational workshops and events on a variety of horticultural and environmental topics are periodically offered to those wishing to learn more about best management practices for landscapes and home gardens.
The Garden is located at 129 Ellis Road in the corporate limits of Griffin, Georgia, adjacent to and west of the UGA Griffin Campus. There is no admission or parking charge, and visitors are welcome on weekdays (except official UGA holidays) from 8 AM to 5 PM and on Sundays from 1 to 4 PM (May through October).
Garden-sponsored upcoming events are listed below. Additional meetings and gatherings organized by community or university groups are listed on our Garden Calendar.
