The Hay House is set to hold their annual Spring Stroll on May 6-8.
The three day event will feature multiple tours, a greenery market and seminars. It will also showcase multiple homes and gardens in Macon.
“It’s beneficial for Mercer students to attend because we are part of the Macon community. Macon is a very historic city. It has a lot to offer as far as its story and its community — past and present,” said Elliot Fernandez, a Mercer student and representative of the Hay House. “This will give students a wonderful opportunity to see historic homes and gardens in the area and get a better understanding of what Macon life used to be and how it has changed and where it is today.”
The Macon Secret Garden Tour will take place Friday through Sunday. The Historic Interiors Tour will take place Friday and Saturday night. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $15. If purchased the day of the event, there is a $5 up charge. Tickets for a combination of the two tours can be purchased for $25 in advance.
Additionally, the Garden Market will return to the lawn of the Hay House this year. It will feature many vendors who carry patio and garden accessories, plants and home accent pieces.
Garden seminars will also be held at the Hay House, located on Georgia Avenue down the street from the Walter F. George School of Law, every day at 2:00 p.m. and will feature talks on cooking with herbs and crafting garden decorating, among other activities.
During Spring Stroll, those who have purchased tickets will be given a free tour of what has been called “The Palace of The South” — the Johnston-Felton-Hay House itself. This famous building has combined historic Macon with modern life, featuring a brilliant display of numerous floral arrangements.
