“Skyland Trail and Woodlands Garden have co-hosted this happy event for eight consecutive years, inspired by its participants – mostly winged children.” Libba Shortridge, HTR, Skyland Trail horticultural therapist states. “Fairies in the Garden provides a platform for awe where nature’s pallet and the ingenuity of the creators of fairy homes come together in wonderful ways. What better audience than children who believe and appreciate the talents of adults with mental illness.”
