You-Pick Strawberry fields are open @ Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens Savannah.
The u-pick fields are open Mon.-Thurs. and Saturday. (no picking on Fridays or Sundays), 9AM-1PM or until the field is picked clean (whichever occurs first) U-pick strawberries are $2.50 per pound. Shop for jam, jellies & preserves, too.
Call 912-921-5460 to learn the status of the field prior to arriving, as poor weather or large crowds may pick the field clean well before the 1 pm scheduled closing.
The best time to pick is first thing in the morning at 9 am (as it is cooler, too).
No pets allowed in the fruit picking fields during your harvest. Children must be supervised to prevent plant trampling. You are responsible to pay for all fruits (ripe or unripe) picked during a visit.
More details here.
COST: $2.50 per pound. Containers provided. Bring cash.
The gardens have picnic tables scattered around the grounds if you want to make a picnic out of your strawberry picking.

The event begins at 4PM with tours of the Gardens showing the numerous expansion projects. At 4:30, come to the new Andrews Visitor & Education Center for a welcome by CGBG Director, Norman Winter. At 5 pm the meal at the Lakeside Pavilion begins (thanks to Savannah Belle Catered Affairs by Miss Sophie’s), and concludes with a strawberry dessert.
