Since 1984 Columbia Green has helped Columbia and the midlands of South Carolina put out the welcome mat. Evidence of the organization's work radiates in community parks, medians, major gateways, and in your neighborhoods, with plantings of flowers, shrubs, and trees that delight the eye and lift the spirit.
Columbia Green is most recognized for the landscaped medians throughout Columbia. In addition, money is raised and granted to civic, non-profit, and neighborhood associations to underwrite projects that re-flourish, revive and enhance public spaces with renewed landscaping.
There are many ways to get involved.

2014 Festival of Gardens to Feature Diverse In-town Landscapes
The upcoming annual Festival of Gardens will be coming downtown once again. This year the event will be held on May 2 and 3, Friday and Saturday, and feature eight gardens in the “Upper Heathwood“ area bordered by Tanglewood Road, Devereaux Road, and Belmont Drive.
The individual gardens participating in this year’s tour reflect the different architectural and landscaping traditions found in this part of the city. From newer homes with formal plantings to some of the original houses built in the area with gardens developed over several owners, these sites have lots of different ideas for visitors to take away with them and transplant into their own yards.
Tickets may be purchased at the Registration Table located in Heathwood Park, 800 Abelia Road, Columbia beginning at 9 am.
