Naturally occurring Asclepias tuberosa in Worth County


Come to SGNPWS 2019 for great networking opportunities!

We learn from each other. We learn - what not to do, what to do and how to do it better - when we share our experiences. If my lessons learned can help you reach your goal sooner, then that is good!

The definition of networking, according to Merriam-Webster, is “the exchange of information or services among individuals, groups, or institutions. Specifically: the cultivation of productive relationships for employment or business”.

We have never proclaimed a “theme” for a SGNPWS event. This year will be an excellent opportunity to focus on networking. We will come together to celebrate progress toward appreciation of native plants, to gain momentum with our connections to each other, and to move forward and see results at an increased pace!!

One of our partners from State Botanical Garden in Athens will give a brief presentation on the Certificate in Native Plants (CNP) educational program. We are so pleased to offer the CNP across South Georgia through UGA Tifton Campus!

Please encourage Garden Club members, your friends, community leaders, teachers, those involved with city planning, landscape maintenance professionals, and anyone who is interested in learning more, and becoming a better steward of the natural beauty of this world to attend this symposium!! I’m sure we will all learn something valuable.

At South Georgia Native Plant & Wildflower Symposium, March 27, Tifton There will be time for exchange of information . . . Please take the time to cultivate productive relationships!

For information about the new Certificate in Native Plants click here.


Take a look around your community. Is there a place where native plants make up most of the landscape? A landscape designed to showcase native plant species. Please tell us about it! The Native Landscape Award is presented to a business or organization that has been intentional about creating and maintaining a beautiful landscape of native, or nearly all native, plants.

Or, if you know of a landscape designer or landscape company committed to including native plants, in the proper place, we would like to hear about them.

  • So take a look around, and find someone “doing natives right!”
  • Go to the awards nomination page and share that information with us.
Thank you!
