Join Rebecca Turk on a virtual tour of Moore Farms. Nestled among fields of corn and soybeans, this 50-acre garden is located in the rural Pee Dee region near Lake City, South Carolina. By combining cutting edge horticultural practices and rural gardening traditions, the Garden is reinterpreting what it means to be a Southern garden: 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.
