HONORARY CHAIRMAN 2016

Lillian Balentine Law



Dear Peachtree Friends,

I am delighted that my mother-in-law Lillian Balentine Law has been chosen to serve as the Honorary Chair of the 2016 Christmas Home Tour. From the moment I met Lillian, she dazzled me with her knowledge of plants.  During the three years that I dated Robert, I was fortunate enough to visit Lillian and Bobby many times, and if you have ever eaten one of Lillian’s meals, you know exactly what I mean. Lillian is the original “farm to table” guru, turning her freshly picked vegetables into ambrosia for the soul.  I marveled that each summer the rose garden on the right side of their property and the vegetable garden on the left side expanded to the point that they almost touched. To say that she is passionate about gardening is an understatement.

After her two sons left home, she and Bobby moved to Twenty-Eighth Street, trading their vegetable garden for an elegant walled garden that they meticulously planned, executed and tended. Their plan included having something in bloom 365 days a year!  Lillian’s keen eye for detail and knowledge of horticulture are apparent at every turn.

Lillian has been a dedicated member of Peachtree Garden Club since 1971, and served as club president from 1989-1991. She is a Garden Club of America Horticulture Judge and served as the Zone VIII Representative for Horticulture, Flower Show, Judging and the Founder’s Fund.  She was the recipient of the Zone VIII Horticulture Award in 1990.  Lillian’s love for horticulture is legendary, and she could fill a room with her numerous blue ribbons, trophies and best in show awards. But, of course, Lillian is far too humble to boast; growing things is just her passion.

Please join me in honoring Lillian Balentine Law as our 2016 Christmas Home Tour Honorary Chair and in support of The Peachtree Garden Club Community Fund.

With sincere gratitude,

Betty Balentine



HISTORY OF THE PEACHTREE GARDEN CLUB
CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR

Founded in 1923,  Peachtree Garden Club was the first garden club in Atlanta, Georgia.  Our first Christmas Home Tour was held in 1949, a tradition that continued through the 1960’s.  The tour was revived in 2008 as a way to give back to the community and is supported by Peachtree Garden Club members as well as corporate sponsors. All proceeds benefit the Peachtree Garden Club Community Fund, a 501(c) 3. Created in 2003 to serve charitable, scientific and educational needs in the fields of conservation and horticulture, the Community Fund has awarded over $400,000 in grants.  Recent recipients include Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta History Center/Swan Woods Trail, Cherokee Garden Library, Friends of English Avenue, Historic Oakland Cemetery, Neel Reid Scholarship Fund for the School of Environment and Design at UGA, Shepherd Center and Southeastern Horticultural Society.
