Mimosas & Magnolias
April 28 | 2 classes: 9:30am & 1:00pm
Our 9:30am is almost full! We’ll be hosting an identical class at 1pm.
Bring your friends for a morning of mimosas, fresh spring air, and plenty of laughs as local artist Richard Worth guides you to create a one-of-a-kind painting of the elegant Southern Magnolia.
Don’t worry, we’ll have all the materials. No experience necessary to have a fabulous time and come home with your very own work of art!
Volunteer Day @ Greystone
May 5 | 8:30am – 10:30am
Help us prepare for spring. We’ll be getting the gardens ready, spreading mulch, and planting watermelon and squash seeds. Come lend a hand and check out the new Greystone Pavilion.
Dancing Under the Stars
May 5 | 8:00pm – 11:00pm
Lace up your kicks and dance the night away at the beautiful Greystone open-air pavilion. With views of the stars and nature preserve, this is a unique and festive way to spend a Friday night, rocking out to the best music in an unbeatable location.
Includes: 30 minute introductory swing/hustle lesson, 2 1/2 hours of open dancing, soft drinks and snacks. BYOB.
Edible Forest Foraging
May 19 | 9:00am – 11:00am
Welcome summer by foraging for wild blackberries on the Greystone Preserve. We’ll be picking blackberries off the numerous patches located throughout the property and then divvying up our pickings so everyone will go home with some of the delicious finds!
Long pants and gloves recommended. We’ll provide your berry bucket!
September 22 | 8:00pm
Hike the Greystone Preserve by twilight and moonlight and experience another world. We’ll explore the forest at night, taking in the sounds and smells of nature instead of the typical sights. If the weather’s good, we’ll celebrate with a campfire and s’mores afterwards, and maybe tell a few ghost stories too!
AU Day of Service
November 3 | 8:30am – 11:30am
Augusta University is a committed member of our local community. Every year, the students, staff, and faculty of AU join together to volunteer their time for countless local organizations, including the Land Trust. This year, we’ll be building all sorts of cool things on our Greystone Preserve, including a new home for our bees, arbors and benches for the campus, and planting more goodies in the food forest.
You don’t have to be a part of AU to lend a hand, either. Sign up today and help beautify your community.
Holiday Wreath Making
December 1 | Time TBD
Get ready for the holidays and craft your own one-of-a-kind natural wreath for your front door (or anywhere!). We’ll provide all the materials and the know-how. Just bring your creativity… and get ready for some serious holiday cheer!
Details coming soon.
