Order your Thanksgiving herb bundles!

This fall, the Wylde Center’s Sugar Creek Garden and Herb Farm will be selling Thanksgiving turkey herb bouquets. These bouquets will contain a variety of herbs harvested fresh from the farm for pickup in time to stuff your holiday turkeys with flavor. Our herbs are Certified Naturally Grown and all of the proceeds from the bouquet sales will go back into Wylde Center programs.

Orders need to be placed by November 20.

Join us on the beautiful Love is Love Farm at Gaia Gardens to support Nichole Lupo and her family. As the sun sets, we’ll kick the evening off with signature cocktails from LEONs Full Service & the Kimball House and enjoy bluegrass from City Mouse. Afterwards, we’ll sit down for a family style dinner from Atlanta’s favorite chefs. A live auction will feature one-of-a-kind experiences, like Georgia mountain escapes and a private farm dinner. *100 % of the proceeds will go to the Lupo Family to defray medical costs from her cancer treatment.
