The South Carolina Federation of Museums is honored to collaborate with Moore Farms Botanical Garden in Lake City, South Carolina for a day of professional growth. This outstanding botanical experience aims to develop our understanding of natural science collections and their management. This professional development program is free to all SCFM members, including lunch. If you have not had the opportunity to experience Moore Farms Botanical Garden, this is the perfect lesson and leisure opportunity.

Nestled among fields of corn and soybeans, this dynamic 65-acre garden is set in the rural Pee Dee region near Lake City, South Carolina. Embracing its southern pastoral setting through an informal, expressive design scheme, the garden is a careful blend of exuberant plant displays, bounding meadows and enduring vistas of grey-green pines. Woven throughout this aesthetic tapestry are innovative research, educational programs and community outreach. The resulting union of art and scholarship is a dazzling example of the modern botanical garden.

Moore Farms Botanical Garden is wildly beautiful, creative and soulful; a place of both inspiration and comfort, where plants rule and there is a feeling of discovery, a sense of hitting upon something that others haven’t.
