2018 Field Trip to Oakland Cemetery

Though the temperature was cold, we bundled up and loaded the van and came by car to hear Sara Van Beck educate us about the historic daffodils at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta.   A wonderful morning!  Sara explained the history and species of the different daffodils, telling us where they came from in Europe.

Jaemor Farm Field Trip

On July 1, 2015 GCMGA members visited the Alto Jaemor Farm and Market. We toured the orchards and fields; picked blackberries; visited the demonstration bee hive; learned about the history of the family that founded the farm and market, and did some shopping. We toured the farm in an open-air bus and nibbled on blackberries between stops. It was a pleasant morning for an outing and the ice cream afterwards was a treat.
