About our SNCA Gardens
Description of the 5 Gardens

Don't miss the spring and fall pollinator plant sales and the classes on pollinator gardens that are a key part of the Native Peace Garden program this year.

This SNCA treasure is a woodland garden behind the Sautee Post Office. The focal point is a White Oak tree estimated to be 200 years old. The garden features plants native to north Georgia. It is a place for quiet reflection and learning.

The Native Peace Garden has a dedicated webpage with all the details:

Sharon McCullough, a retired life sciences teacher, is now an instructor with Monarchs Across Georgia, a committee of the Environmental Educators Alliance of Georgia. She also volunteers with Friends of Georgia State Parks at Hard Labor Creek State Park near Madison. Her new project at the park is Monarchs in the Rough. This project creates pollinator habitat in the rough of the golf course using native plants and making sure there is milkweed available for monarchs.

Watch for Sharon coming to make a live presentation on Monarch Butterflies at Sautee Lunch & Learn when we are able to resume our in-person community gatherings!
