Today we’re bragging, again.

As Earth Day approaches next week (officially on April 22) we are going to give you the scoop on Earth Day celebrations in Savannah, and our urban gardening adventures.

No celebration is complete if we can’t celebrate ourselves…Don’t you agree?

We are so committed to fresh, seasonal and local to the point that we tend our very own urban garden.

Celebrating the Gardens at Azalea

Here we are, today, celebrating our Gardens. We actually have two. One, an ornamental landscape and the other an edible landscape. The best of both worlds!

Our edible landscape is full of tomatoes, squash, eggplant, herbs, cucumbers, and other goodies. Our ornamental landscapes mimic traditional plants that were grown in the early days of Savannah settlement and we hope you’ll come and find your favorite.

The Mini Farm at Our Eco-Friendly Bed and Breakfast

Last year we called our edible gardens a “Mini Farm” and the story is quite a good read if you like to see urban gardening at its finest, and really investigate all the produce varietals that will be showing up in our guests’ full gourmet Southern breakfasts each morning. As a truly eco-friendly bed and breakfast, we’re doing our best to improve every day and every year.

We use a method of space conservation called square-foot gardening. We grow our food on trellises to maximize the yields from the least amount of space. Smart space utilization IS so important, especially downtown in the historic district of Savannah. We’re right at the south edge of the Savannah’s historic district so our guests get all the amenities without all the noise. Be our guest, during Earth Day, and all other days. You’re always welcome at Azalea.
