Woodlands Garden is thrilled to announce the imminent return of the Fairy Gardens and Houses, this coming Sunday, May 27, 2-4 pm. Last year visitors to this delightful event were charmed by miniature houses built from bark, branches, berries, seed heads, leaves and other natural materials. Fairy Gardeners from Skyland Trail’s horticulture and art therapy groups design and build the houses. Staff and clients will be available at Fairy Headquarters to answer questions about this nationally popular pastime for self-expression and horticultural therapy.

Woodlands began as the home place of the Morse family in 1946. Chester and Gene Morse settled on a wooded plot of land near where Clairemont Avenue crossed a dirt track called Scott Boulevard. Gradually, the Morses added land to bring their property to 7.1 acres and named it “Woodlands.” Much was left natural, while around their home the family created a charming cultivated garden.
