SPRING NATIVE PLANT SALE OFFERED A GREAT VARIETY OF PLANTS!

Great Speakers, and great vendors, not to mention the limitless Mimosas (the non-invasive type) brought a crowd to Ashantilly for Coastal Wildscapes' Spring Native Plant Sale! McIntosh County's new County Agent, Geoffrey Duesterbeck, was on hand to introduce himself to these gardners and give information about programs that are available.

LUNCH & LEARN WITH COASTAL WILDSCAPES FOR THE BIRDS!!

Coastal Wildscapes' Eamon Leonard presented an excellent talk on what to plant to attract birds to your yard. A packed crowd learned about plants and features to use in the landscape for birds, and then enjoyed a great lunch catered by Joye Hanrahan. It was definitely "for the birds"!

NEW LEADER FOR ASHANTILLY'S ANNUAL SCOTCH WHISKY TASTING!

Ashantilly Center celebrates Scottish Heritage Month (March) with an annual Scotch Whisky Tasting. Tim Rutherford, our friend and supporter for many years, moved to Asheville NC and was not availble to lead this tasting. Vince Becker, of Habersham's Liquors in Savannah, came to the rescue! Vince did a great job of teaching participants about the finer qualities of this rich Scottish tradition. And give a shoutout to Habersham's for their generous discounts that helped make this fund-raiser successful!

THE ELVES HAVE BEEN BUSY!

Ashantilly is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Noel Gieleghem, Brandon Tyson, and Bill Bolin worked tirelessly decorating the house, inside and out, with natural materials from our coastal region. Boondoggles and grape vine wreaths were decked out with shells, pecans, citrus, and greenery. Carol Gaither, Gigi Stratton and Donna Bassett did their annual decorating of the tree, beautiful!
