From June until September, the Georgia Mountain Research & Education Center will be open on Mondays, 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. for visitors to enjoy the demonstration gardens, woodland trail, and Interpretative Center.
The Georgia Research and Education Center has established a native plant garden, a woodland medicine trail, and a multi-use interpretative center. The Interpretative Center is housed in the historic Community Cannery building built in 1935 by the Federal Emergency Relief Administration.
Since the 1930's the Research and Education Center has served the agricultural needs of the mountain area and that history is preserved in historical panels displayed in the new Interpretative Center.
Group tours can be arranged by contacting Clare Johnson at the GMRE Center at 706-745-2655. The Center is located three miles south of Blairsville, Georgia on the east side of US Highway 19/129.
For those who have a real interest in using native plants as medicine, the GMRE Center is an excellent educational tour. The Center is located on a beautiful piece of land in the North Georgia mountains.
