Formerly a USDA Plant Introduction Station, and known by locals as "The Bamboo Farm," the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens (CGBG) at the Historic Bamboo Farm houses an internationally known collection of bamboo, as well as many rare and historic plants and trees. Visitors will also see seasonal displays of native and regionally adapted plants recommended for the coastal region. Many of the plants are one-of-a-kind specimens in North America. Others are some of the oldest and best specimens in the United States.

CGBG is a unit of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Conference facilities are available for public and group use and include an educational building with a demonstration kitchen seating 100 people, an open-air pavilion that accomodates 300 people, and an educational classroom for school groups. All rental fees support our environmental education and community outreach programs.
