Gibbs Gardens in the Spring - May 6, 2018 - 1 Day Workshop

Tuition $80 (does NOT include $20 pass to garden ($18 for seniors) or $5 tram fee) 


View Video!!

Roses, rhododendron, water lilies and Japanese gardens....if you haven't been to Gibbs Garden in the Spring then here's your chance.

Join us as we guide you through the garden and Manor grounds with great tips for photographing natural features, colors, and textures.  From landscape, reflections, intimate compositions and macro photography, you can do it all in this garden. 

The workshop will meet at the main gate of Gibbs Gardens when it opens promptly at 9am for a quick introduction and will finish around 3 pm the same day.  Please feel free to bring a bag lunch or plan to grab a quick sandwich or salad at the Cafe located near the main gate for lunch.


Tuition does not include admission to the gardens or the tram pass.  You may either use your season pass if you have one or be prepared to pay the $20 admission fee ($18 for seniors) at the gate, and the $5 tram fee as well. 


CANCELLATION POLICY:   There will be no refunds issued after April 22, 2018 (two weeks prior to the event). In the event the workshop is cancelled due to rain, the participants will be refunded.




We often have participants who join us from fairly far away - Florida, Tennessee and the Carolinas, for example.  Although this is just a 1-Day workshop, you could easily make it part of a fun long weekend in the North Georgia mountains!  Consider staying in and visiting Blue Ridge, Georgia.  Rent a cabin and make it a mountian adventure weekend!  Blue Ridge is a very cute little mountain touristy town and has a fun little downtown shopping/restaurant area and also boasts a passenger train that runs a fun day-trip through the mountains.  There is a great orchard in town (Mercier Orchards) that has lots of gift shopping, a bakery and even makes their own 'special' ciders.  Blue Ridge, Georgia is about an hour or so from Gibbs Gardens.
