Please mark your calendars for this great afternoon event.
The Research and Education Garden is open during daylight hours. If you have the opportunity, come out and stroll through the beautiful settings. Tables are set up for the public to enjoy a leisurely lunch or break in the day. Activities are offered throughout the year such as “Scarecrows in the Garden” in October, a visit from Santa during the holiday season, along with kite flying, Mother’s Day activities, and so much more.

*The Campus Store, located on the first floor of the Flynt Building, at 1109 Experiment Street, is freshly stocked with Officially Licensed UGA apparel, souvenirs and gifts. With football season right around the corner it is a good time to get your Bulldog shirts, hats, flags, mugs, banners and more. A coffee nook is set up adjacent to the store to gather and visit. The regular Campus Store hours are Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
*The Mule Barn is turning into the Dundee Café in the heart of the Griffin Campus, as we speak. This is thanks to a gift from the Dundee Community Association. The Dundee Mills operated in Griffin for over a century in the area across from the Experiment Station, now the University of Georgia Griffin. When the café opens it will be a welcoming place to meet and eat for the entire community. The official UGA dedication will take place October 4that 2:00 pm.
