true! Using the “Garden History of Georgia, 1733-1933” published by the Peachtree Garden Club of Atlanta in 1933, which identified 154 important public and private Georgia gardens, the Seeking Eden authors painstakingly researched and wrote updates for each garden. In addition, the book includes an in-depth look at 26 of the gardens, including four in the Savannah area. The Seeking Eden authors have been receiving rave reviews on their presentation about the book at Garden Clubs across Georgia. We are so lucky to have them right here on Skidaway!
