The Northeast Georgia Master Gardeners have been hard at work developing the Hart County Botanical Garden in Hartwell, Ga. The project was the vision of Anne King, a member of the first Hart County Master Gardeners class in 1997. The garden will provide a place of natural beauty for the enjoyment of visitors, and educational opportunities as an outdoor classroom. Area schools, the FFA and 4H organizations will use the garden in their ongoing study of trees and plants.

There is an amphitheater and a paved, covered pavilion at the garden that is available for rental. This space is typically used for weddings and social gatherings and by garden clubs, community groups. The pavilion was constructed in partnership with the Hart County Rotary Club. The Botanical Garden will also have a Children's Garden and a Memorial Garden. The Children's Garden activity area was furnished by the Hartwell Kiwanis Club, and the area plantings were furnished by Faith Lutheran Church. The entrance is graced by a water fountain donated by St. Andrew's Episcopal Church.
