Support the Garden Center

Have you ever driven by 505 Kennesaw Avenue and wondered, what's going up on that hill? The Marietta Educational Garden Center is supported by 20 Garden Clubs in Marietta. The Garden Center, also known as Fair Oaks (c. 1850) is frequented by these groups for meetings, social gatherings, and public events.

But, it takes direct public support to keep our precious Fair Oaks in tip-top shape! Won't you consider donating to our Annual Fund Drive? The Marietta Education Garden Center, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) and all donations are tax-deductible.

We welcome people who are interested in becoming a new member of an existing Garden Club, or who would like to start their own club.

Looking for a wedding, rehearsal dinner, or reception site with Southern charm and ambiance? Become part of the home’s history by having your event here.

The Marietta Educational Garden Center is also perfect for luncheons, showers, family gatherings, special occasion parties, company parties or business seminars.

The Center hosts many events throughout the year such as educational programs related to gardening/horticulture, outdoor concerts, wine tastings, plan sales, etc.

We are proud to be a vibrant part of the Marietta community and hope to be here for years to come!

It was a beautiful, sunny day as close to 70 guests gathered at the Garden Center for the "Say Cheese" Luncheon on March 7th. This delightful luncheon featured Brian and Sassy Henry, founders of Palmetto Cheese - The Pimento Cheese with Soul! from Pawley's Island, SC. The food was delicious and catered by Marietta's Freckled & Blue Kitchen. The adorable centerpieces were designed by Karen Callaway of the English Laurel Garden Club and were table prizes for some lucky guests. Two beautiful gift baskets were raffled off and everyone left happy and inspired by the Henry's story.
