Celebrate the success of the 2012 Savannah Preservation Festival: Preserving a Sense of Place on Thursday, May 31 from 6-9 p.m. There’ll be live music, hors d’oeuvres, wine, an exotic plant auction and container gardens by our area’s finest floral designers and it’s all taking place in the Isaiah Davenport Garden. The results of our month-long art and destination auctions will be revealed. Also, the winning entries for Pennies for Preservation Poster Contest will be on display.
The Davenport House garden is a place of beauty and peaceful solitude in the heart of Savannah’s Landmark Historic District. It is a wonderful place to celebrate the inaugural preservation festival and a perfect example of why it is important to preserve Savannah’s history and charm. Since 2001, Davenport House volunteers have taken on the stewardship of the garden and developed an endowment for its care. The most recent redesign of the garden includes beds containing representational plantings that include flowers, vegetables and medicinal herbs that may have been grown by the original Davenport house gardeners.
This festival has been a signature event that emphasized the Historic Savannah Foundation‘s core mission of education and outreach. The garden party will be an outstanding grand finale you’ll not want to miss.
