Tall Timbers featured as Hearth & Soul’s February Non-Profit Partner
Tall Timbers would like to thank Hearth & Soul for featuring us as their February non-profit partner. Hearth & Soul is “a unique concept in retail that is reminiscent of the home as a gathering place.” On Thursday, February 17, they hosted a Meet the Makers event at their store featuring Tall Timbers. Over 100 participants attended the event and learned about Tall Timbers’ programs. Throughout the month of February, Hearth & Soul sold a special candle—Sea Pines—with one-hundred percent of the net proceeds benefitting Tall Timbers. Makers of local artisan goods were on hand. Tim Edmonds, an artisan of handcrafted serving boards, Lisa Phipps designer of Chic Verte jewelry and P. W. Bryant of Bespoke Feather Hats displayed and sold their items at the event. On the patio, Tall Timbers displayed its outreach and education animals, which included bobwhite quail, box turtles, a gopher tortoise and several non-venomous snakes—a big hit with the kids. Inside, Dr. Monica Rother showcased the beautiful longleaf pine sections that show fire history. Additionally, Rose Rodriguez, Director of Communications for Tall Timbers and co-author of the book, George M. Sutton’s Watercolors for Georgia Birds: A New Look, signed copies that were for sale at the event. It was a wonderful evening celebrating Tall Timbers and its mission.
