The Gathering Garden is a hidden gem in downtown Greensboro, Georgia, filled with gorgeous palms, several types of bamboo, and many other beautiful plants.

Open to the community during regular business hours, the garden is the perfect spot to get away from the hustle & bustle of day-to-day life, sip your coffee or enjoy your lunch, and just relax.

The garden is also the most amazing venue for your next special event! Whether you're looking for a unique location for a corporate luncheon outside of the four walls of a conference room, or a magical venue for a bridal shower or engagement party, the Gathering Garden is the place for you!


In addition to the Gathering Garden, Lake & Local also has an indoor event space in the back of the retail space with a gorgeous view of the garden itself.

The indoor event space, the Statham Room, is a 400 square foot room that can be closed off to the rest of the building and can seat roughly 40-45 people comfortably.

The Gathering Garden can be used in addition to the Statham Room, or separately, and can also seat roughly 40-50 people comfortably, depending on table and chair layout.

Lake & Local is happy to provide folding tables and chairs for your event as part of your event rental fee. When renting the Gathering Garden, you can also choose to add on the use of two standing propane heaters for your event.

We are also happy to provide you with suggestions for vendors such as caterers, florists, and photographers to make your event truly extraordinary.
