Make Your Art

For us, “Make Your Art” means creating a community that values the arts, agriculture, and horticulture in equal measures, with an ongoing spirit that encourages us to bring artistry to the everyday.

experience

Lake City, South Carolina
When you visit Lake City, you do more than visit a historic community with deep roots in the agricultural traditions of our past —you experience the best of what a Southern small town can be. While walking through our downtown historic district, you’ll see eye- catching floral scapes made of native plants grown locally by professional horticulturalists at Moore Farms Botanical Garden, as well as beautiful, colorful murals that express our artistic heart & soul.
